Catfish Channel catfish

2 posts in this topic

To correct some miss information about catfish and how fast they can grow really depends on the diet they are fed if they are fed a diet of commercial fish food they can grow up to a lb to two pounds in a year in the wild it will be slower but not to much slower unless there is just no forage for them to eat, it also depends on the stocking rate in any given body of water. Catfish can live quite a few years but they don't grow all that slow. Yes catfish can catch and eat some of your bass but you're other fish in the pond will do the same thing.  That is why fish have such large numbers of eggs that can hatch each season. 

  If want to keep a balance and productive farm pond catch all the fish you want and never return anything that has hatched in your pond. If you have ever been to a pond fishing and catch a bunch of bass and all of them are small and about the same size you have a over stocked pond and not enough food for the fish to feed on the overall numbers are to high in the population.
