Largemouth Bass are a species of black bass that are native to North America. They can be broken down into two categories. (1) Florida bass which is native to south Florida and (2) Northern bass which account for the rest of the country.
The Florida Largemouth Bass is known for its exceptional growth rate, while the Northern Bass is known for its aggressive nature. Southern States Game Fish Hatchery also produces an F1 bass which is a cross between the Florida bass and the Northern bass. One can expect the F1 bass to have the growth rates of Florida bass along with the aggressiveness of the Northern bass.
Largemouth bass are available in several different sizes dependent on time of year. Two inch, six inch, eight-to-ten inch and 1 pound plus may be available. Please call for more details. Stocking rates for new ponds are generally 50/acre in an unfertilized pond and as many as 100/acre in fertilized ponds. Southern States would be pleased to assist you with different stocking rates based upon what the the pond owner would like to achieve.
