LCS update: Found another 21 5-6" LCS below the overflow pipe. One was dead and another 3 will likely not survive. The remaining 17 swam away in the new 1/2 acre pond that only has FHM in it so far. The top predator will eventually be blue catfish in that pond, and black crappie may be their main food source, but that is undecided right now. The FHM and LCS need to get going first, as well as some plant cover. Bill Cody called the LCS situation in the YP/SMB pond right on the button like usual. The only way to have 25-35 LCS of this size from a founding population of 12 is a successful spawn (as Bill suggested before I found the 21 additional fish today) followed by really fast growth. Those 20 SMB stockers must be really fat!
