I have some questions about stocking a pond with catfish. I have access to a pond that had a lot of catfish in it years ago but some kids would go in there and feed them and shoot the fish when they came up. I want to re-stock it for my little boy for when he gets big enough to fish. I need to know how many fish to put in it. Do I measure the pond and go by that? Also, do I need to 'kill' the pond before putting fingerlings in it? How long does it take a fingerling to grow big enough to catch? Thanks for any help.
