A large sunfish, although not as big as the largemouth bass. It can grow up to 16" long and can weigh five pounds, but they are usually much smaller. The back of this fish is greenish, the sides are silvery with black markings that don't continue to the belly. Black crappie live in warm ponds, lakes, streams and reservoirs. They are schooling fish, so they like to stay in groups. Spawning occurs in May and June in water three to eight feet deep with a sand or gravel bottom. The first year they will grow two to four inches. The young will eat zooplankton and as they get bigger they move on to larger foods. Adults will eat small fish, insects, crayfish, tadpoles and just about anything else that will fit in their mouths. They feed most during the evenings. They like water with plants and underwater structures. Predators include any larger fish such as bass and catfish.
Black Crappie prices: 3" to 5" are $2.50 each & 5" to 7" are $3.00 each
They are often thought to be a relative to Southern states only, but actually do very well in Wisconsin, especially in ponds that get warm in the summer months. They do great in 70-85° waters and feed on minnows, insects and commercial pellets. They can often grow from 4" - 6" fingerlings in springtime to 12" - 14" by fall. They can reach 25 - 30 pounds and are very good eating. They do well when stocked with hybrid bluegills, largemouth bass, walleye, and even trout. Catfish will spawn in warm water ponds, when spawning containers are available. Great predators.
Channel Catfish prices: 6 " to 8 " are $2.00 each
Commonly called the tuffy or blackhead, and are a very important bait minnow for fishermen. They also provide forage for larger fish. The generally reach 2-1/2" to 3-1/2" in length and have a life span of two to three years. They are very hardy and tolerate considerable handling. Spawning begins when water temperatures reach 50 - 55°F and repeats monthly until waters cool in the fall. They are very prolific, laying 200 to 500 eggs per spawn. Stocking fatheads with game fish can greatly increase the growth of the game fish.
Fathead Minnow prices: 1-49lbs are $6.75 per lb, 50-99lbs are $6.25 per lb, 100-199lbs are $5.75 per lb & 201+lbs are $5.50 per lb.
Bluegills generate offspring that are 50% male and 50% female.. They thrive in warmer water, 70-85°F being very suitable. They do well when stocked with trout, largemouth bass, channel catfish and perch. Bluegills will overpopulate a pond unless you have gamefish to keep the numbers down..
Bluegill prices: 3" to 4" are $1.10 each - 4" to 6" are $1.70 each - 6" to 8: are $2.50
(Sunfish) are a cross between two of the sunfish family: the bluegill and the green sunfish. Generally males are the predominate offspring, accounting for 90 - 95% of the young. They grow rapidly and often reach 1-1/2 pounds in two to three years' time. Many reach 8-1/2" to 10" in length, 12-18 months after being stocked as 2" - 3" fingerlings. They thrive in warmer water, 70-85°F being very suitable. They are not sterile as many think, but because of the high male ratio they are less prolific than regular bluegills and much faster growing. They do well when stocked with trout, largemouth bass, channel catfish and perch. (Yes, hybrid bluegills do spawn).
Hybrid Bluegill prices: 3" to 4 " are $1.10 each - 4 " to 6 " are $1.70 each - 6 " to 8 " are $2.50 each
Jumbo Yellow Perch
Perch are also sought after because of their delicious taste. They are school-running fish and are often fished near the bottom of lakes and ponds. They feed on small fish, insect life and will feed readily on commercial diets, if trained. Jumbos can reach 12" - 14" in length and 1 - 2 pounds if food is sufficient. They can be stocked with most other species, especially hybrid bluegills, largemouth bass and catfish.

Large Mouth Bass
One of our best predator fish for controlling the number of small fish in a pond or lake. They put up a real battle when caught by hook and line. They are often stocked with hybrid bluegills, channel catfish, perch and walleye. Care should be taken to stock predator fish before your lake or pond becomes overrun with small or stunted fish, which is a difficult situation to reverse without killing off the entire pond.
Large Mouth Bass prices: 3 " to 5 " are $2.75 each - 5 " to 8 " are $3.50 each
A most sought after fish for their delicious taste! They are strictly cannibalistic in their feeding habits and do not feed on commercial pellets. When stocking with other cool or warm water fish they help keep down the number of small fish which enhances growth rates. They do well with yellow perch, hybrid bluegills and bass. Walleye seldom spawn in small ponds and should be stocked in ponds only one acre or larger. We will have Northern Wisconsin, Great Lakes and Southern Wisconsin strains.
Wisconsin Walleye prices: 4" to 6" are $2.50 each - 6" to 9" are $3.50 each
