Hybrid Bluegill are a cross between a Green Sunfish female and a Straight Bluegill male. They are a popular fish for pond stocking because they grow large in size and are aggressive and easy to catch. They are a fan favorite for kids fishing ponds and kids fishing derbies. The sex ratio of Hybrid Bluegill are 90% Male to 10% Female. They do not reproduce fast and will cross with other bluegill species. Therefore they are not recommended for a forage base for larger fish. They will have to be restocked periodically to keep a population going. They will eat a floating pellet fish feed and can reach up to 2 lbs in size. It will take 5 or more years in our area to reach that size. We recommend stocking 250-500 of the 2-3″ size per surface acre.
