I guess I'll find out how big they are in a few weeks. I can't complain as they are being given to us.
Do you think this pond's forage base natural reproduction could support the 30 SMB?
Yes, for some amount of time, maybe 2-3 years. After that, you have to manage.
You should entertain putting Yellow Perch in also.
Ive just put a total of (45) SMB into a new pond that's maybe 1/5 - 1/6 acre. We'll have to cull eventually.
