Suttle Fish Farm
sells the Florida Largemouth Bass for pond stocking. Our strand of
Bass is one of the best on the market. We have sold our Bass to state
fish hatcheries and commercial fish hatcheries. The Florida Largemouth
Bass is the ultimate species for stocking lakes and ponds. It is the
number one sought after trophy fish. Mississippi state records have shown
the bass reaching 18 lbs. and above.
The horizontal and vertical
markings on the Florida Largemouth Bass are very distinct. The name
"Largemouth" is certainly indicative of the very largemouth they possess.
See the Bass anantomy link below.
The stocking rate for
the bass should be in the ratio of one bass to ten bluegill. They should be added in May, June, & July after the

and their main food supply is the bluegill. Studies have shown that in order
for the bass to gain one pound in weight, five pounds of bluegill will
Proper pond management
is extremely important to promote the food chain of the bass. Adding
the Florida Largemouth Bass to a pond with other species of bass will
increase the genetic potential of that pond.

proud of our brood fish. enormous effort is made to maintain the genetic
line of the Florida Largemouth Bass. Measures have been taken to ensure
that no interbreeding takes place.
