Types of fish that will be included in the Smith Farm Supply February and March Fish Days:

Coppernose Bluegill – Bluegill reach harvestable size within 12 months and can reach 1 lb in a year in the right conditions.  In addition, they reproduce very well and in great quantities and are excellent feeder fish for your bass. Feed twice a day for best results.

Channel Catfish – Channel Catfish are North America’s most numerous catfish species.  Undoubtedly, Channel Catfish do very well in ponds. They are typically restocked as they are removed (every 1-2 years).

Shellcracker – Shellcrackers have similar characteristics to the Bluegill. They will reach slightly larger sizes. When stocking people often use alongside the Bluegill because they add variety to the pond. However, do not compete much with Bluegill for natural food. Both will eat fish feed, but Shellcracker’s main diet is snails, mollusks, and other small shelled creatures (hence the name). ​

Hybrid Bluegill – Hybrid bluegill is a cross between a male bluegill and female sunfish, which results in 80%-90% of the population being reproduced male. This slows down fast reproduction by keeping the female population to a minimum.

Sterile Grass Carp – Sterile Grass Carp are used as an organic method of controlling problematic weeds instead of using expensive and harmful chemicals. They are a non-indigenous species from Asia and can easily become invasive.
