Bluegill


Bluegill are widely considered to be the ideal panfish for a stocking combination that includes largemouth bass. The main reason for this is that they reproduce several times throughout the summer providing a continuous food source for the bass. Plus, individuals that grow too large for the bass to eat provide an excellent panfish fishery for you. They will accept a commercial diet, if you plan to feed the fish in your pond. Be careful, if you don't harvest sufficient numbers of bluegill and over-harvest largemouth bass, you will most likely end up with a population of stunted bluegill that will limit the reproduction of your largemouth bass. Once a pond is out of balance it can be difficult to re-establish a balanced population.
