Riley and I fished for maybe for an hour yesterday. Caught 10 in about an hour. The largest was 3.5-4lb range. All of them were fat chunks. Had one jump and spit the hook that looked like it was in the 5-6lb range. All of them were fast and chunky. We stocked these in June of 2015.

Keep pumping the food to them. Remember to start aggressively harvesting this year. We recommend harvesting at year 3. 20-25 lbs per surface acre per year is a good "general" rule of thumb. Less fertile lakes require less harvest, and some more fertile lakes require more harvest. Measuring and weighing your fish and comparing them to a relative weight chart is a great idea. This will help determine harvest goals.

Most folks start their lakes with great intentions and then never harvest enough of the small bass and the lake quickly becomes out of balance.

Good luck!

Steve,

Any particular size we need to start harvest? Say 14" or smaller? I also ordered a fish tag system to start tagging them, as well as a fishing record book to weigh, measure and record their progress.

Yes. 14 inches and smaller is a great start. If the goal/budget affords trophy size bass, move that size to 16" and smaller. Some folks are even moving their sizes to 17" or even 18" and below. These folks truly have the budget and desire to grow really big bass.

As you might expect catch rates will diminish when you harvest, but the size of bass will increase.

Is that a full sized pontoon with a flat deck? Move around with the TM okay (12v?). Seems like a great choice for a pond from a few acres to 20 - 30??

Yes sir. The trolling motor is a 45lbs. It moves around pretty good for the most part. We use it more for a swim platform. I filled a old protein tub with concrete and sank it in 30 feet of water with a float so we can pull up to it and hook up with out having to anchor all the time. Works out pretty good.
