Bass

Question: Do I need to remove bass from my pond each year?

Answer:In most cases, Yes. Bass harvest should start one year after the bass were stocked into the pond. If you are fertilizing the pond, and have maintained a good phytoplankton bloom, you should remove bass 14 inches or smaller at a rate of 25 to 30 fish per acre, per year. If you are not fertilizing the pond you will need to remove bass that are 14 inches or smaller at a rate of 10 to 15 fish per acre, per year. These are the basic harvest recommendations. Your situation may require a different harvest strategy. Contact us to determine if this may be the case.
