Agent By HAROLD SPANN A question asked by many peo- ple every day is, "What kind of fish shall I put in my Pond?" "Stock your pond with what- ever kind or kinds you like to catch," says County Agent, Har- old Spann. If you are catfisher- man only, then there is no rea- son to stock other species; the same goes for bass or sunfish. If you want all kinds, then bass, channell catfish, and redear sun ' e ~' 1 fish are compatlbt . Evidence indicates that it is not necessary to stock a forage fish along with largemouth bass, explains Spann. Many sources still recommend stocking a sun- fish such as the bluegill along with the bass. These cover large sections of the country including states north of Texas where the growing and spawning seasons are shorter and more gacirable for bass-bluegill combinations. A female bluegill can spawn as many as four times during a sing- le season in Texas, notes the County Agent. The results is thousands of bluegills that never reach edible size. Another factor contributing to the bluegill is that bluegills are not the "ice cream" in any fish's diet. Bass prefer feeding on their own kind and other species rather i than on bluegills, says Spann. Channel catfish are scavengers and eat few bluegills. If sunfish are desired, the most suitable species is the redear since it spawns only once a year and thereby lengthens the time before overcrowding occurs, says the agent. Crappie or white perch should not be stocked in ponds having less than five to 10 surface acres, because, like bluegills, they will overpopulate a small pond in one or two years. A pond should always be stock- ed with fingerlings that are ap- proximately the same size, such as those obtained from state and federal hatcheries. Never go to a nearby stream or pond and seine fish for stocking. "A balanced fish population is almost impossible to obtain i1 stocking of all sizes and kinds of r fish is practiced. Never introduce 'fingerlings into a pond contain- ing adult fish, particularly bass. A pond should be stocked with a balanced group of fingerlings only after the adults have been removed. Fingerlings for stocking private ponds can be obtained free of charge from either state or fed- eral hatcheries. CARROLL & LEflR Fnenl Home 0 Application forms and stocking recommendations can be obtain- ed from the local agent or game warden, adds Spann. Requests for stock fish may be made at any time. See Tom Browning, Game Warden in Athens or the County Agent. It is important for pond own- ers to fill the application card THE MAIJtKOFF Malakoff, Texas Friday, July 31, 1964 Page Three correctly and not to "hedge" on ,the size of the pond in an efforl to get more fish, comments the agent. It is just as bad to stock a pond with too many of the right kind as it is to stock it with undesirable kinds. Just as range land has a certain capacity for a specific number of animals, a pond can only support a specific number of pounds of desirable fish. o EXCERPT FROM A LETTER OF APRIL 17, 1962 "'It is my earnest hope, as indeed it should be the earnest hope of aft freeaom loving peoples, that the students who pass through the portals of this new Academy of Freedom will do so in the determined and relentless search for the means to shore up, fortify and revitalize that cherished heritage which they hold."
