Do you love big bluegill?
Could we get an update on your pond? How big are the RES now?
I also would like an update to this thread. I'm also trying to raise RES along with FHM and wonder if this pond was a success or failure as far as the RES goes.
Bump. An update would be nice. I have been raising RES along with FHM and more lately GS in a 1/20th acre pond for two years now. I can not say it has been a great success, but I have been trapping and pulling out quite a few YOY RES and transferring to my main pond. I need to use a cast net or some other means to sample. Have caught a few adults on hook and line just to sample the breeding stock.
A GSF snuck in somehow and have also been getting some RESxGSF hybrid fingerlings which I am not opposed to.
Here is the pond I am raising the RES in. The fish information is later in the thread about the pond.
