At Blue Ridge Wildlife & Fisheries Management, LLC, establishing a self-sustaining ecosystem is the principal goal when it comes to any pond. Fish feeders can help to expedite this process through supplemental feeding times, which can lead to bigger fish. If your pond is already at a sustainable level, then supplemental fish feeding would jump your average biomass immediately; more food equals bigger fish. When fish feeders are added to an area where habitat has already been installed, the results can be phenomenal, leading to almost immediate success when it comes to recreational fishing.
Blue Ridge Wildlife & Fisheries Management, LLC offers a variety of feeders in different sizes and timers. When it comes to the feed you use, the protein level of the feed is not very important. Studies have shown that low-protein feed (25 percent) will produce excellent growth. Therefore, it is not necessary to purchase high-protein feed. It is very important not to overfeed. A good rule of thumb is to feed the amount that the fish will eat in 10 to 15 minutes, but not more than 10 pounds per acre per day. Winter feeding is not necessary but may increase bluegill growth.
