The automatic Mounted Fish Feeder is ideal for mounting on your dock to feed your fish on time, every time, and fatten them up quickly. The Mounted Feeder includes a solar panel, a rechargeable battery, and a varmint guard as standard features so you won’t have to worry about jammed mechanisms, dead batteries, flooded feed, failing timers, or damage from raccoons and other pests.

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

When you supplementally feed your forage fish, that also means a higher percentage of them will make it to broodstock size. That means you’ll have more adult forage fish spawning and naturally replenishing the forage population, so you won’t have to supplementally stock as many forage fish or as frequently. Typically, we recommend two feedings per day, one in the morning and one in the evening, with a run time of 3-4 seconds. This will feed approximately 1.5 lbs of fish food per feeding. At this rate, you’d go through about 100 lbs of feed per month.

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.

More Details

The Mounted Fish Feeder standard features include: 
  • Welded aluminum canister with powder-coat finish

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.

We offer a 10-year structural integrity warranty on the all-aluminum, welded, powder coated body. The Timer has a 5-year warranty and the motor, remote and remote parts each carry a 1-year warranty from their manufacturer. Warranties are only offered on products manufactured by Pond King.
The fish feeder will come completely assembled, but you will have to install the battery and timer. You’ll receive detailed assembly instructions with your fish feeder, but it’s really pretty simple.
  1. Remove the main feeder lid and inner canister lid.
  2. Unwrap the battery and timer from their protective packaging and locate the three wires: one for the timer and two for the battery. 
  3. 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.
  4. Push the timer plug into the side of the timer and set the timer inside the canister. 
  5. Follow the operating instructions on the back of the timer to set the clock and run times.
  6. 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. 
  7. Replace the main feeder body lid and secure it using the green cable.
  8. Mount the feeder onto a 2” square post about 2-3’ off the water using the bolts provided.

FAQ

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.
The bodies of both feeders, and the floats on the floating feeder, are all-aluminum, welded, and powder coated. While this makes them slightly heavier and a bit more expensive than other feeders on the market, it also makes them virtually maintenance free and highly durable. You’ll be using your Pond King Fish Feeder for years to come.
Our fish feeders use a funnel system. The feed moves down the funnel and rests on the throwing disk until the timer goes off, engaging the motor.
The mounted fish feeder takes a 6-volt and the floating feeder takes a 12-volt battery and those, plus a rechargeable battery with solar panel, are included in your purchase.
No, our automatic fish feeders use a spin cast.
Both the mounted and floating fish feeders can throw up to a ¾” pellet. The mounted feeder holds 50 lbs of feed and the floating feeder holds 100 lbs. It’s important to note, many feeder manufacturers base their capacities off of corn, so they'll hold less pellets, especially larger pellets. Our weights are “true” weights, based on ¾” pellets.
The floating feeder dispenses feed into a circular 8’ pattern. The mounted automatic fish feeder dispenses 50% of the food straight down, and 50% of the food no more than 6’ out in a semicircle.
The programmable timer allows you to set up to 6 different feed times per day with a duration of 1 second up to 30 seconds.
For most ponds, we recommend feeding your fish twice a day (morning and evening) for 3-5 seconds per feeding. This will dispense approximately 1.5 lbs of food each time, or about 100 lbs of feed per month. But if they aren’t eating all the food in about 10-15 minutes, you’ll want to adjust the duration of the feeding.
A good rule of thumb to follow is one feeder per acre. If you are going to use more than one feeder on your body of water, be sure to disperse them evenly across the surface to ensure all your fish have the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of supplemental feeding.
No. Since you can adjust the frequency and duration of each feeding, you can control how much your fish are getting fed. You’ll want to adjust your feeder so that your fish consume all the feed in about 10 - 15 minutes after feeding.
