I stocked fifty 4"-6" CC in May of this year.
I did not expect to see them taking feed until spring 2019. That was the pattern for my first initial fingerling CC stocking (last spring.)
Ladder method, now in the 2nd summer.
These new CC fingerlings had the benefit of aeration, daily feed and a higher water quality due to a heavy application of Ag lime.
It really is amazing how much a healthy water quality and daily feed increases the fish growth and health.
I plan to harvest these fish at 1.5-2 lbs for tablefare, leaving last year's fish for trophies and to assist the LMB in forage population control.
I expect these fingerlings will be ready for harvest around August of 2019 rather the original Sept/Oct as originally planned.
