We are proud to announce some exciting news. Largemouth Bass will be available to private pond owners from Foxworthy Lake. These bass are genetically superior, healthy, and harvested with known ages showing rapid growth rates.
Most hatchery fish are the result of genetics from one source. We handpicked the genetics for the bass stocked in Foxworthy Lake in June of 2009. These bass came from the best sources for Northern, Pure Florida and F1 largemouth bass. The lake now has bass over 7.7 lbs in only 2.5 years. As you can see this is one fat bass. This rapid growth is ciritical to ahcieve the full geentic potential of these bass.
We will begin this spring selling the bass spawned in the lake in 2010 and 2011. These bass are fat and extremely healthy. They are being grown in a lake with the best water quality, fertility and forage base around. Adult bass grown in hatcheries are raised intensively with thousands per acre resulting in slower growth. Most 12-14 inch bass being sold are 2-4 years old. These bass will be 1-2 years old and again have good genetic diversity with bass coming from four sources.
Given the rapid growth and excellent body conditions of these bass I expect the 1,000 lbs to go quickly. Couple this with the novelty of the Foxworthy name and I wish we had more to sell. Please contact us to get on the list.
The following prices apply:
7-9 inches $5.00 9-11 inches $10.00 >11 inches $15/lb.
Minimum order $250
