The Green Sunfish has
detroyed more new ponds than Carter has pills!
They will overpopulate and become so stunted and rarely reach a
desirable size for angling. They will eat other small bream and bass
and will take over a new pond. These fish must be kept out of a new
pond.Green sunfish will eat anything they can catch and swallow. These
fish make good fish bait but never fish with them in private ponds.
then to your state lakes and rivers and fish with them there. Hopely
day they will out law them for fishing bait too. These fish are
good for anything. Most fish biologists will tell you to kill out your
pond if you catch five green sunfish species out of ten. I tell my
with small ponds to kill out if you catch three out ten (no use to
prolong the problem). All old ponds must be killed out if you have
to start over. Drain your pond as much as possible and use a chemical
to kill all fish left. The best time of year to use rotenone is August.
Use enough rotenone to get a good fish kill. No new fish should
for at less three or four weeks.
