Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

All right guys I need your opinion, are they Coppernose ? I tried to count bones in the anal fin and at least one picture you can see what I think are twelve. Tony Livingston here's  more pictures, I caught 16 today and they all looked the same to me. Please give me your expert opinion.

 Tony, This pond was dug down to dry clay, no ditches and no other ponds anywhere. The fish in the pond all came from the hatchery. What I ordered was two pounds minows, 500 Coppernose, 100 Redears and after one year 100 large mouths bass. The first year fish may have eat all the bass because I've not caught any. Between fish and food I have a thousand dollars in the pond and I wood rather not kill everything. What would you recommend to put in to keep the Greenies under control and how big would they have to be?   Thank You very much for your help.

Visit Pond Boss. Tony is over there, as well as quite a few pondmeisters of high caliber, with decades of experience in dealing with the same issue that you have.

You've indicated that the pond was stocked with LMB as well. Before you start posting in Pond Boss, make sure to collect all the info so they they can assist you properly:

1. How big the pond is (length, width, depth, and total volume in each area since stocking and maintaining them are games of proper balancing).

2. Be precise at how much was stock per species, their approximate sizes (full grown, year-of-young, or somewhere in between), since they can estimate the predation level from each species.

3. Feeding.

4. Pond management technique and observation, which include weathers (affecting water temperature, biological, and oxygen load). Remember, improper maintenance can kill the more sensitive fishes, while the stronger and hardier one live on. Coppernose is one of the sensitive fishes when it comes to fluctuating temperature.

You'll see us over there. I'm more of the technical and regulatory guide. Plenty of experts in providing biological and proven methods to deal with your pond.

All fish came from the hatchery, No other way where this pond is.

Every time there's a stocking, ensure to take photos of the stockers. Pick a handful of random stockers for each species. Many hatchery claim to stock something, but we tend to find information a bit different for some hatcheries. Always be on the side of caution.

Receipts for the fish in the pictures, you be the judge.
