The Largemouth Bass is the most popular gamefish in the United States. The Florida Largemouth Bass holds the state record in 5 states and the world record which was caught in Georgia. These Bass live an average of 7 years longer than the Northern Largemouth Bass which enables them to grow larger. We crossed the Florida Largemouth Bass with the Georgia Largemouth Bass which produced a faster growing, more superior Bass than the native strain.
Stocking rate is determined by the availability of food. The diet of a Largemouth Bass consists mainly of live fish, frogs and insects.
When stocking Bass in a pond already stocked with other fish, these fish already in the pond should be large enough that the Bass won’t eat them. Large Bass could also eat some of the new baby Bass, therefore, provide some cover such as brush or reefs so the baby fish can hide.
Bass are helpful in controlling wild fish that may infest a pond. Bass eat up small fish, thereby helping keep a pond from becoming overpopulated.
Book orders well in advance as Bass are available in early spring only.
