Beside this, are Crappie bad for ponds?
Stocking crappie in ponds is not recommended, but they are good to eat and some people want them anyway. Trophy crappie fishing is available in farm ponds, as evidenced by the fact that the state record catches of both crappie species are from ponds.
Additionally, what do you feed pond crappie? Here is the list of food you can feed the crappie in the pond:
- Aquatic Insects.
- Juvenile Sunfish.
Additionally, how fast do crappie grow in a pond?
But the crappie that do survive are likely to grow at a satisfactory rate (8 to 9 inches in three years). Most crappie enthusiasts would rather have a few large crappies in their pond than none at all.
Can crappie live in small ponds?
Crappie can be a difficult fish to manage, especially in small ponds. If you are trying to maintain a small pond with multiple sport fish species, such as largemouth bass and crappie, you may find that you have a hard time growing anything of a substantial size.
