From what I have been told about bream in the south, that would not normally be consider good management practices because the reproduce so frequently. There will be fish on the beds here for 5 months, makes the bass happy, happy, happy. But leaves the bream small if not removed. I emailed this photo to a few friends yesterday, the guy holding the fish raises them to stock pond over in Mississippi. This is a Coppernose Bluegill, 23 oz. 12 1/2" long. To get a preceptive of the size of the fish save the photo and blow the total format size to 15", the resultant size of the fish is lifesvize. This is the result of a very well managed pond, feed and fertilizer.
