I have a 1.5 acre pond with a good portion 14 ft deep with an average of 8 to 10 . Last year while fishing on Lake Erie I caught a nice Silver Bass so I thought why not see if heíll do good in my pond . Well I havenít seen him or caught him in a year until last night when I was feeding my bluegill he came up and started crushing the pellets he Must of got 50 of them .

It has me dreaming of top water fishing . He looked really fat and healthy after a year of being in the pond.

Does anybody have experience with them in ponds? I particularly want to know if they will Spawn in there.

What is a Silver Bass? Never herd of that type of fish. Maybe an HSB?


Do not judge me by the politicians in my City, State or Federal Government.

They will not spawn in the pond. I've worked with a few ponds stocked with feed trained white bass. They did pretty well, but HSB seemed to outlive, outgrow, and maintain better body condition.

Silver Bass...AKA White Bass or Sand Bass.

I don't know much about the White's, but I think they are big open water fish and prefer running waters to spawn.


Fish on!,

HSB would be much better than pure bred whites - they have more potential for growth and overall size, most come feed trained from suppliers, etc. The only source for pure whites you're going to find is a rod, reel and bucket.

Ok thx. I donít think there are any suppliers of HSB in Ontario so maybe Iíll give them a try ... when you find them on Erie itís easy to catch a bunch. Having some in my pond as a bonus fish would be fun ... I like the idea of not spawning. Thatís why I put in 40 Walleye..
