I don't have many LMB but a lot of CNBG. I stocked 40lbs of FHM last year and I'm sure they were all gone before they had a chance to spawn. There may have been a lot of them that went over the spillway because they seemed to be thriving and then within a week or two I could not see any schools.
I was thinking about putting a 4' by 50' minnow seine from the end of a point to the bank this would give me about 250sq surface feet of area. I would add structure in that area for spawning. What do you guys think if that? I think I would need to feed also what would you use and do you think it is necessary to feed? My pond is 3 acres and I'm adding 150 LMB fingerlings. I was thinking about putting another minnow seine from the other side of the point to the adjacent shore to protect the LMB. I would feed these until about 6" and then remove the seine. What are your thoughts on this?
Thanks for any replies.

That may help the minnows. But depending on the size of the mesh in the net it might also gill net them, so you have to take that into consideration.

If you stock 4" LMB then you don't have to worry about protecting them.

The net is 1/4 mesh may have some issue with shiners but maybe not the fatheads. The LMB that are available in May are 2 to 3" and price is $1.80 per fish.
