I know a lot will depend on the variables, considering well fed with pellets etc, and good water quality . How much growth from 6-8inch fish stocked in April 2013 to April/May 2014? Midwest area, deep pond , old gravel pit.

I am thinking most will go from 6-8inch to 12-14inch and be close to 1-1.5lbs come April/May? By Sept/Oct 2014 be closer to 2-2.5lbs?

I found this online and found some info in the archives but wasn't sure how accurate:

Feeders, forage?


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Here is a link to some discussions about growth of HSB. It would be good if others could post pictures of HSB that they know the age of the fish.
