Heath I have a few that feed trained themselves lol. I also have crappie in my pond and they have not overcrowded like the LMB have done. This is the first year that I seem to have an abundance of baby BG. This spring I plucked out a double digit LMB out of it. Pond is going on 5years old. My thinking is to feed the BG the best feed that you can and the rest sorta takes care of itself. ( not really) but it helps

That's cool they trained themselves. Congratulations on a double digits bass, they're hard to come by.

Heath...I stocked 1-1.25 pound LMB into our 1.6 acre pond that had an existing LMB population. It has worked out really well. Those stockers were obviously feed trained. I think it is safe to say very few or none of the existing population have been "trained" on the feed. We feed MVP using a TX Hunter feeder.

The adult stockers were all 14" or a little longer so their survival rate appears to be pretty good. They are mostly 3 pounds plus now after stocking in June of 2017.

You might consider giving that a try. BM61.

Hey Snrub, did you get any storm damage? Looks like yesterday's storms hit your area pretty hard, hopefully everyone is safe.
