2024 Fall Fish Sale

Stay tuned for details about our Fall Fish Sale in September

 

Fishing Boat
Please Read This Section.png
What to Bring: 
* A container (a 5 gallon bucket works great) lined with an unscented garbage bag filled with your pond water to pick up your order. 
Approximately 5 gallons of water for each 100 fingerling size fish is needed.  We suggest using a trash can or 5 gallon bucket with a new, unscented plastic liner—then add
the pond water so the top of the bag can be tied shut & filled with air for transportation. Remember, the Amur are 10”-12” long and need a suitable container.

Do NOT bring:
* Coolers (there is not enough space to provide the air that your fish need to breathe)
* Plastic sheeting
* Nothing (we do NOT provide anything to transport your fish)
Fishing Bait
Recommended Stocking Rates

 

Triploid White Amur are stocked to control leafy pond vegetation.  Algae is not a preferred food. The life expectancy is about 10 to 12 years.  Recommended stocking rates for the Amur are 2 to 5, per surface acre of water, based on how much weed cover is in the pond at its worst point over the summer.

 

Stocking recommendation for Largemouth Bass is 100 and for Bluegill 500 per surface acre of pond area. Yellow Perch and Redear Sunfish (Shellcrackers) can be stocked at 100 per surface acre of pond as well.

 

Channel catfish can be stocked in ponds that are half an acre or larger. Catfish will not reproduce in a pond, however, they provide excellent fishing. The stocking rate is 50 per surface acre of pond area. A 4”- 6” long catfish stocked this spring will double in size by next spring.

 

Japanese Koi will eat aquatic vegetation  such as duckweed and water meal, while adding a little color to your pond. The recommended stocking rate is no more than 5 Koi per acre.

Nature’s Pond Conditioner is a once-a-year treatment that adds a natural green color, while lowering fertility levels in your pond.

 

We have also included in the fish sale the opportunity to purchase Steve Fender’s book, titled “Pond Management” 2018 Edition for purchase at $20.00 each.
