My lone gbh on my 2 acre pond will not leave. He is seen stalking every day. I read everywhere what they eat and how they eat but does anyone have info on actually HOW MUCH do they eat?? Pounds per day?? Mine looks to be full grown. He is huge! How long it takes them to digest?

I was hunting hogs last night with the thermal scope and saw a GBH feeding/moving along the shore line at 10:30pm. If he feeds day and night it doesn't bode well for my fish.

Bottle rockets, roman candles, M80s, R/C controlled helicopter or boat are all interesting toys to enjoy while an unwanted and uninvited trespasser is around...

I've had them stab and kill fish that were too big for them to eat, so................

2 years ago I had 200 4"-6" HSB in a cage that I was feeding and growing for sale in the Fall. Put them in the cage in early June.

Come Oct 1, I pulled up the cage to get 50 out for a client. I had seen a GBH standing on top of the cage a few times and I ran him/her off. (no net on top of the cage)

I had 24 HSB in the cage........

So my answer to how many they eat is too many for me.
