I wish they would grow them to at least Fingerling size before stocking. Those Fry get eaten up pretty quick by Bream,

The article states that they are fingerlings that will be stocked.

PAW grows baby bass to about 2 to 2.5 inches long. These are what they refer to as fingerlings, and they are typically 30 to 35 days old.

If they grow in the same pond, they will start cannibalizing each other..

Often times when we are putting fish in the lake we see them trying to eat each other.. Usually resulting in the death of both fish.

IMO Bass fingerling stocking is very beneficial especially for long term results considering some of the many bass mortality factors one of them being cormorant.
Not sure of fingerling mortality rate estimates due to cormorant but the cormorant population seems to have exploded in Texas.

Glad all of Ivie's spawn could benefit everyone else instead of the fish being released back into the lake to spawn right after she was caught.

Personally I am very thankful that we have TPWD. I have lived in a few states fished in many more. TPWD is among the best or the best at providing us incredible fishing.

Here here!

I've lived in a few states that leave it to natural means and it sucked fishing.

Heck even in CA where trout stocking was prolific back in the day....now you're lucky if more than 3 lakes got trout.

You're right cause no other females spawned this year on Ivie. There was only a 10lber every 10 yards on the bank at times....

Your comment is ignorant. It isn't about what did spawn, it is about the amount of spawn we lost that went to other lakes. We already don't get [censored] for stocking out here as it is, now a good portion of our spawn that SHOULD have stayed in the lake went to other places, my guess being fork, rayburn, and toledo bend.

I could be wrong, but didn't they stop taking Ivie fish after a few and release them back into the lake because they didn't need any more "Ivie" genetics in Athens? I know there were quite a few that made it to Athens, but not all of them. I am pretty sure that for years when Fork had a ton of SAL caught many those fingerlings went to other lakes other than Fork. You're welcome.

Yup I wish Oklahoma had something like this. We are stocking some but nothing like this.
