I usually don't. Unless the owner says to.

But sacalait probably need to come out of there. If you want some decent bass. Probably need to take a lot of fish out if you want decent bass. How big is said pond?

Yea, that's big but not huge. Probably ought to keep a good bit to get some room for fish to grow.

If that's what you're after, at least.

Everything. If you don't want to keep it then throw it on the bank. Probably already too late.

Keep every sacalait , every perch, and bass rule is 10-20 pounds per acre per year depending on fertilization.

We have a 4 acre pond and tell anyone who fishes it to take out all sac-a-lait and brim that they can catch

Sacalait are very bad about overpopulating a pond. I'd keep every one I felt like cleaning. You'll never get rid of them without nuking the pond.

We'll just have to disagree to agree.

I think rabbits multiply faster.

I'm here but don't have but a few bream in my pond if they're still in there after them rains.
To the OP if you need help with the white perch problem let me know where & when & i'll regulate them for you
