1/3 acre pond 12 ft deep. We stocked initially 250 hbg and 4 lbs of fhm in 2018and we do feed. Latge water events last year and this year caused us to lose a bunch of the hbg. We put in 100 bg and 50 cc to try and make it more self sufficient. Recently we have found small GSF and we caught a crappie. I imagine they came from the only other pond in this watershed. Question is do I stock bass this fall to start controlling crappie and BG or do I go with something like a HSB?

My LMB have caused the almost extinction of my crappie (which I didn’t want to happen). Not getting any recruitment because of the high population of BG eating the eggs
Do you have LMB in your pond? HSB might be able to control the crappie, I have never had them yet
