Bluegill reach harvestable size within 12 months and can reach 1 lb in a year in the right conditions. They are normally stocked from September-May, but can be stocked year-round. They reproduce very well and in great quantities. This makes them excellent feeder fish for your bass. They should be fed twice a day for best results. Excellent to eat, as well as fun to catch, these aggressive biting fish are a must for a well balanced pond.
