I'll look that up. I'd really like to raise some big bluegill. The pond is about 3/4 acre and 10-12 feet.

along with a couple hundred bluegill youll need some LMB, probably about 30-40 fingerlings. id probably put very few channel cats in there then. the bass will feed on the bluegill and keep their growth rates chugging along. without bass youll have a pond full of stunted bluegill. too many channel cats and theyll raid the bluegill nests and feed on the eggs and fry.

Good info. I read somewhere that crappie will do the same. Wish I could have a pond with some crappie, but apparently that's a bad idea too.

We’ve gotten ours from the Centerville Co-Op. I’d just call the Co-Ops in your area...they typically can tell you the food truck schedule. When I’ve seen the schedule in the past while there, Ive taken a picture of it

Not sure if you have a Rural King in your area but we have a fish truck at ours at least once a month with several species for sale. May want to check with them.

I wish. Closest one to me in Lebanon is in Clarksville.

I may give them a ring. about an hour and a half from me. If I can keep the fish alive long enough, I'd go pick them up.

I called Jones Fish Hatcheries today. They have an office on Elm Hill Pike but don't have a hatchery there. They told me you can come pick them up at their location once a year though, usually the last week in March. I believe they are shipped in from their headquarters in Cincinnati. :bash:

Just saw it in the Fayette Co. paper over the weekend. You might call the 800 number to see when they are coming thru again.
I will post again if I see the advertisement in time.
I usually buy 15 - 20 pounds of flathead minnows in February for mine bass to eat over the spring / summer.

I called the Fish Wagon place this afternoon. They're adding me to their email list for Tennessee stops. They told me they don't guarantee the fish to live beyond 45 min to one hour after they give them to you. They said they might make a stop in Hartsville in January. That's about 30-35 min from me. Hope they get down there in Jan.
