Proper Nutrition for Game Fish

Monday, September 9th, 2019

Proper Nutrition for Game FishAre you wondering how to achieve proper nutrition for game fish? There are a few factors to consider. One of the most valuable tips to implement is having “forage” fish available. These are small minnows, bluegill, or catfish. They will provide food for your larger game fish such as bass and trout. Want to learn more of the basics? Continue reading below!

Supplemental Feeding:

  • Provides a constant food source
  • Contributes to a higher ratio of food to weight gain
  • Attracts forage fish to a larger body of water
  • Supplies nutrients to the water which grows phytoplankton
  • Resistance to disease
  • Try a floating rotation

When to Feed:

The best approach is to develop a daily schedule. Fish get used to you feeding them in the morning and evening. If you can’t commit to twice a day, scattered feeding is still better than nothing. If you want consistency in your fish, give them the same in a routine.

Where to Feed:

Choose a location from a dock or the bank where the feed can be broadcast over deep water and hand feed from the same place each time. Automatic feeders are a consistent go-to and provide great results. Also, consider trying a feeding ring. This will help introduce pellets to your fish population.

How Much to Feed:

  • Stocking rate – One station for every 10 acres of the surface area is adequate.
  • Pond fertility – very fertile ponds with high levels of phytoplankton often have high levels of natural food, decreasing the amount of supplemental feed required.
  • Water temperature – catfish, bluegills, and minnows will surface-feed when the temperature is between 55°F and 85°F, with peak activity occurring at about 80°F.

Purina offers more details to help further the development of your pond. To learn more about proper nutrition for game fish, click here.

Harvesting Creates Balance

Monday, September 9th, 2019

Harvesting Creates BalanceAs most of our fish customers know, harvesting creates balance. Giving special attention to bass and bluegills, we’ve got some great information to share! Harvesting helps maintain the pond and its population. Purina has released some helpful suggestions that will aid you in creating a thriving environment for your fish. Check them out below!

Recommendations:

The size of the fish you wish to harvest is entirely up to you. If you’re managing for good all-around fishing, you can harvest the following recommended number of pounds of good eating-size fish:

  • Bass- Fertile and Fed Ponds-25
  • Bass- Infertile Ponds- 10
  • Bluegills- Fertile and Fed Ponds- 200 or less
  • Bluegills- Infertile Ponds- 100 or less

Enhancement Strategies:

Play an active role in enhancing the quality of fishing in your pond by utilizing the following strategies:

  • Feed your fish
  • Install fish attractors – these supply cover and protection for fish, provide a substrate for aquatic invertebrates, and concentrate fish for better fishing.
  • Aerate and destratify – mix the water to prevent dead areas from forming in your pond. It can make your pond more productive, eliminates pond turnover, and can prevent fish kills due to oxygen depletion.

The overall goal is to have a self-sustaining pond that produces healthy fish. Purina suggests you keep records of your catch and harvest to compare during different seasons. One specific target to aim for is to have both species in equal harmony. A variety of other species typically don’t stay in balance despite management efforts. Simply restock each year to avoid issues.

For more information on stocking strategies, contact your local Purina Animal Nutrition representative or visit our website. Stay tuned for more pond stocking dates coming soon! We hope you learned a little bit more about how harvesting creates balance.
