Do you love big bluegill?

Thanks to many discussions with Walt through email and phone, I think the Male only approach is going to happen.  

I plan to Rotenone the pond so that we can start clean.  I will be stocking a ton of Grass Shrimp and Papershell crayfish.  I will also be adding freshwater clams and probably two types of minnows.

I'll be purchasing an aerator and an automatic feeder to try and help everything out.  Then come spring time, I will be fertilizing the pond as well.

After all that, I'm stocking 50 male Northern strain bluegills with another 50 Coppernose.  I think I'm right at the line where they can survive, but not thrive in normal conditions.  We hope that with all the forage in the pond, they should still be able to do well.  No one else has tried that I can find in my immediate area so why the heck not!

Pretty excited to make this all happen.
