Lets say a guy wants to be more hands off feeding wise. Kids like to catch hybrid bluegill. Fathead minnows reproduced like crazy. However I like diversity. Im leaning towards reverting back to bluegill, and lmb and letting nature do its thing. The feeding is fun for awhile but its hard to get to every night, and the constant intrusion has had a negative effect on our wildlife viewing.

Ended up with another 100 hybrid bluegill and 50 cc. Gonna continue feeding. I wish fish feeders were as cheap as deer feeders.

I have had good luck with an inexpensive deer feeder for feeding my fish. I only use it when I am out of town because I like to hand feed, but it has seen a few week long employments and performed nicely. Here is my thread on the feeder. For $50 and some way to hang it...your in business...

Fish on!,
