I am getting ready to stock my 1.3 acre pond and the hatchery is trying to sell me 1000 1/2" long lmb for it and 3000 minows ? What would be a suggested number to stock with ?

130 LMB and at least 5#, more along the lines of 10# of FHM. If you can stock other minnows that will get 6"-10" long, stock 5# of them as well. 100 (or less) LMB per acre)

3/4 to 1 1/4 ac pond LMB, SMB, PS, BG, RES, CC, YP, Bardello BG, (RBT & Blue Tilapia - seasonal).

Are there currently any fish in the pond?
Men and fish are alike. They both get into trouble when they open their mouths.
