Just bought a fish feeder and Pruina fish food is pretty expensive. Anyone have any other suggestions that are still good but cheaper?

purina is expensive but the best - it floats and has a great attractant but mostly it comes in the various pellet size so that all the perch may feed on it - i have used it for 3 years with great results tim

I prefer Purina Game Fish food also. I bought a bag or two of the local Co-Op brand and my fish would hardly eat it. Most of it settled to the bottom and algae started forming on it. I suspect that it was relabeled rabbit food . You don't really save any money if most of it is wasted. :rolleyes:

I agree with the above two posts!

You get what you pay for as far as I am concerned.
I would ust gamefish chow or aquamax chow if you dont have any small fish you are feeding.

I use to use regular fish food for feeding my fish but quit when my suppliers weren't reliable and I started using the cheapest brand of WalMart dry dog food. $ 5.95-# 40lb—small pellets—floats. I now use a similar type from Aldi's but comes in a 15 LB bad with 21% protein which is easier for me to handle and is the same price per pound. Yes, the higher protein would make your fish grow faster but most bass won't eat it unless you buy the special ones trained for it. Many of the other fish will eat some vegetation and so they are getting what they need from the lower protein anyway in the way of plant food fillers. I feed so I can see my fish and they are very fat, looking like tear drops. But my pond has lots of natural food in it that isn't killed off by chemicals which I don't use. So it works for me and my needs, but that's just me.

I've used 36% fingerling catfish food since my Bream were old enough to take it. They love it and I have a LOT of big, healthy bream. Lots of smaller ones, too, which is great for the Bass population. My bass are just 2 years old and I catch a number of them in the 2 pound+ range. Landed one this summer at 3.5 pounds. That's pretty good for a 2 acre pond, for a 2 year old fish. The feed floats well and has enough size variation to ensure the little guys get some too. It's only $10/bag from the local co-op- it's their brand.
Only trouble is that my pond is down about 2 feet due to less rain and a lot of it falls on the ground - I was brilliant and set the feeder stand in concrete \:\(
Live and learn.
