Fish Stocking Recommendations

We offer high quality Walleye, Yellow Perch, Black Crappies, Small mouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Hybrid Bluegills, Bluegills; some pellet trained as well as fathead minnows. Our fish are certified disease free, including VHS.

Pond Stocking Recommendations:

For your average one-acre pond we recommend that you stock no more than 100 of the fish in the predator category (Walleye, Small mouth Bass, and Largemouth Bass). You should not stock any more than 500 fish from the prey category (Hybrid Bluegill, Yellow Perch, and Black Crappies).

We like to see people stock fish that go well together in a pond. If you are a pan fish lover than you should stock hybrid bluegills with largemouth bass. If you like walleyes, then you should stock them with yellow perch. If you want Black Crappies in your pond we recommend that you have either Largemouth or Small mouth Bass in your pond.

We do not recommend that you put walleyes in a pond that is less than 2 acres in size and less than 10 feet deep. All ponds and watersheds are different. Soil types, fertility, age, and water sources all play important roles in the quality of your pond. Use natural techniques to control vegetation as much as possible. Aeration can positively influence the efficiency of your pond.
