Reading through some archives, I guess once thought or maybe it was the way hybrids were made through the hatchery that most would top out at 3/4-1lb. It now seems reasonable to get that 1-1.5lb HBG with good management. 1.75lb + even at the top end...and growth is pretty rapid . I am enjoying feeding mine ...very aggressive .

Each of (CNBG and BG) will do best in its preferred environment. The main factor to consider is location (temp profile).

Sprkplug is getting very close to the 2# mark. He posted a picture of a really nice HBG of his in the last month or so. Maybe he will link to it or post it again.

I was so disappointed to read "Florida bass won't get larger than the Northern, in colder climates. It's all about the length of the feeding season". And now you are disappointing me the second time.

Fla LMB and CNBG evolved together in peninsular Florida at a time when it was cut off from the mainland US by high sea levels. Both are in the same family (Centrarchidae) and genetically related. No surprise they show similar traits with respect to cold tolerance.

Wow...that's amazing. Well done!

Is that a true F1 hybrid? Looks like it...and yes, we need details on the feeding program, please!

DD:

I feed Aquamax 600 & 500, about a 9:1 ratio. Usually 8-10 cups a day (it's a half acre pond), up to 6 days a week (2-3 days a week so far this Spring).

TJ:

It could be an F1, but based on the typical appearance of my "have to be" F1's over the last 10 years, I think it is more likely some indeterminate Fx (or possibly an F1 backcross with a RES).

Still slinging the Aquamax? I'm glad to hear it's helping yield these results.

Not pond related but had to share.

My in-laws, my parents, and my wife and I went down to Cabo San Lucas a few weeks ago. My dad and I went out fishing one day and caught these two 30-40 lb. Yellowfin Tuna. Had a blast and can't wait to go again.

Looks like a blast. Tell Randall that I said howdy.

Theo - I'm glad to see you can raise fish as good as your cattle. Very impressive.
Chris - Those are some nice Tuna. Have you ever caught anything that strong before? It was probably like hooking your line onto a lawn tractor.

It is the biggest thing I have caught. Took about 10-15 minutes to get it in. Can't imagine trying to catch one that's 100+ lbs.

Beautiful fish, Chris. Did you eat them? If so, how were they?

It is the big salty pond Chris.

Great catches. Worth some bucks at the fish market.

Yeah I brought back 28 lbs. of fillets. It was very easy to bring it back.

So far I've only ate it raw but I think this next week I'm going to do some seared tuna steaks.

I keep trying to see if I can get something different but I cant get away from the pond snook. They do seem to be getting bigger though.
