The fastest way to fatten up your bass is to fatten up your forage fish
Unless trained from a juvenile age, bass won’t eat pellet feed, but they still benefit from supplemental feedings. When you supplementally feed your forage fish, they get bigger faster. That means they provide a higher-calorie meal for your bass, which in turn means your bass will also get bigger faster.
Supplemental feedings can help lower your supplemental stocking budget
Maintenance-free and long-lasting
Like all our Pond King products, we build the mounted fish feeder by hand. The canister is all-welded, powder-coated aluminum so it won’t rust. The pellets are distributed using a spin cast, so you don’t have to worry about a centrifugal air blower malfunctioning. You’ll need to replace the batteries occasionally, and the Timer lasts about 5 or so years, but the canister and dispensing mechanism will last a very long time with virtually no maintenance.
17" Dia., 32" Tall
All-Aluminum, welded, powder-coated body
2-3 ft. off water

You can also choose to include a matching powder-coated mounting post with hardware to mount to an aluminum, steel or wooden flat structure.
The Pond King Mounted Fish Feeder ships via ground and the Floating Fish Feeder ships via freight on a pallet. We only ship to physical addresses in the continental U.S., and the freight fee will include residential delivery with a lift gate and appointment. The shipping rates are calculated at checkout.
- Remove the main feeder lid and inner canister lid.
- Unwrap the battery and timer from their protective packaging and locate the three wires: one for the timer and two for the battery.
- Slide the wires onto the battery terminals matching up red to red and black to black and set the battery in the canister with the wires toward the top.
- Push the timer plug into the side of the timer and set the timer inside the canister.
- Follow the operating instructions on the back of the timer to set the clock and run times.
- Carefully arrange the timer, battery and wires back inside the canister and replace the lid - making sure none of the terminals are touching the aluminum and you don’t pinch any of the wires with the lid.
- Replace the main feeder body lid and secure it using the green cable.
- Mount the feeder onto a 2” square post about 2-3’ off the water using the bolts provided.
Both of our automatic fish feeders are made from powder-coated, welded aluminum and come standard with the solar panels, rechargeable batteries, and varmint guard - so they are both low-maintenance and reliable. The choice really comes down to capacity and access.
- The mounted feeder holds 50 lbs of feed and is designed to be mounted on your dock, or on the shoreline, but you do need a sturdy post to mount it to. It is a great option if you have a dock or a good shoreline that you can easily access while carrying a 50 lb bag of feed. (If you feed two times a day, you’ll need to refill the feeder about twice a month.) But, if you mount on a fixed dock, or the shoreline, if the water levels change significantly, you could experience some waste.
- The floating feeder holds 100 lbs of feed. You can pull it into the shoreline, or you can use a boat to refill it, so it is a little more complicated. However, you won’t need to refill it as often, and since it floats, all the feed always goes to your fish, whether the water is high or low. Even though both feeders come with a varmint guard, because this one sits in the middle of the pond, it is even harder for critters to steal your fish food. Although we’ve had some good bear stories.
