Snrub any chance you have caught any of the HSB this year. I havnt caught any myself. I do see them (I think) at feeding. All the fish are so fast it's really hard to tell. Also the water clarity still isnt very good since doing more digging. Just curious at the rate of growth of them.

Here's one my buddies 10 yr old caught from my pond the other day.

That fish is 4 years old, was stocked as a 4"-6" fish.

I cant wait. When these sucks where just like 6 inches or so they can put up a amazing fight. Landing one of few pounds will be a blast.

Rusto, I was hoping you would catch one or two this spring just to get an estimate on their growth rate.

Weren't the HSB you put in your pond last fall almost all in the same size class?

Hopefully, you can catch a few this summer on lures after the "spring smorgasbord" has passed!

Both times iv put them in was the same size yes. They came from the same batch both from Snrubs place. I dont really want them to get hook shy but I want 2 are the growth of them also. I will post a picture if or when it happens. Wish me luck...
