Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

I built  a 3 acre pond, 14 feet deep at the dam in the fall of 2013. It filled over the winter, got stocked in spring of 2014 with 3,000 Coppernose bream, 9,000 fathead minnows and then a couple months later 300 F1 largemouth bass. 

Over the summer a small elak combined with a severe drought brought it down to about 2/3 of an acre. Got the leak issue solved and now it is full again.

I can see a few 10-12" bass and occasionally some almost hand sized bream around the feeder.

Should I restock this spring or just wait and see what I have?
