Largemouth Bass

largemouth bassLargemouth bass are a popular freshwater game fish. When stocked properly with an adequate supply of bluegill and sunfish, these fish may grow as much as 1 to 1 1/2 pounds per season. We currently only have northern strain bass in various sizes.


blue gill 2

Bluegill are a good forage base for a pond or lake that maintains predatory fish such as bass.  Their prolific reproductive nature means they can spawn multiple times throughout a given year.   High population density retards growth while the opposite occurs with low density. Bluegill primarily consume zooplankton, insects, and other invertebrates.

Channel Catfish

catfishChannel catfish are one of the easiest fish to manage in your pond or lake. They can feed on a live forage or you can supplement with a commercial feed. Supplemental feeding will often allow the catfish to achieve growth rates sometimes exceeding 1 1/2 pounds per season.

Redeared Sunfish

redeared sunfish

Redeared sunfish are a good substitute or addition to a pond with bluegill, and generally grow from 1 to 2 pounds.  Many people desire to have redeared sunfish in their lakes because they eat snails.  We grow a small amount of this species and have them available several times throughout the year.


Hybrid Carp
