Do you love big bluegill?
I have gained access to a small 1/2 to 3/4 acre subdivision pond that is loaded with small gills 3-5 inches, and a few good ones as well. There are also some hybrid gills, green sunfish, channel cats, bullheads, and bass in this pond. Out from the dam the water is about 10 feet deep. It very rarely gets any fishing pressure to help control the gill population. I have only seen one man and a small boy ever fish it other than my wife and myself. The bass seem to be in all size ranges, with the largest I have seen being a little over a pound. There are some 2-3lb. channel cats, and the bullheads average 3/4 to 1lb.
Now that you have a picture of what this pond is like, I have some questions.... Is there any way to grow larger gills in this pond? I cannot poision it out and restock it. Will feeding help this pond, or will I be wasting my time and money? Can one person catch and remove enough of the little gills to make any difference? Is there any hope for this pond, or should I look for somewhere else to fish?
