The Coppernose is a subspecies of Bluegill native to Extreme southeastern United States. It is now generally stocked in the ponds through the south. Copernose bluegill looks like a native bluegill, but Coppernosis can be identified with the copper around the nose. They also have a similar diet consisting of insects, crustaceans and other white invertebrates. Bluegill has a small mouth that limits them to the diet of small meals. However, they can eat small fish, including young largemouth bass. This is the main reason why you do not see your bass wear too long after your socks. Lifestyle is about five years for both native and coppernose bluegill.
Copernose bluegill has a history comparable to Florida largemouth bass and in warmer climates, including Texas, Coppernose bluegill dafna. Research conducted in Texas suggest that the Coppernose Bluegill grows faster and reaches a larger size than native bluegill. The largest Coppernose Bluegill taken from private water in Texas was 3.25 pounds. Because Coppernose grows faster and grows larger, they will produce more offspring than native bluebells. One adult female bluegill can produce more than 10,000 eggs on spawn. Therefore, they are stocks as the main part of the food chain to support largemouth bass. Bass needs to eat 10 pounds of bluegill to get one pound in weight.
Very often, we recommend to feed the blue grid to get a good size of over 10 inches, which gives you protected beef. This means that even your greatest bass will not be able to swallow the nuances that extend over 10 inches. Use pellets of liquid fish at 30-32% protein. You can handle or use an automatic feeder to disperse feed up to twice a day. Children, especially enjoy watching the fish, almost as much as catching them. Feeding fish regularly will not have a significant impact on total catch, but it will at least double their growth.
Coppernose bluegill will serve a dual purpose in your pond or water. Not only are they fun and often easy to reach, they are the backbone of the food chain.

Bluegill spawn early in the season will develop and begin to breed later in the same period. Early pregnancy and frequent reproduction make them the ideal feed and the need to grow the winner largemouth bass.
