The fastest way to fatten up your bass is to fatten up your forage fish
Maintenance-free and long-lasting
The powder-coated, all-aluminum construction ensures you’ll be feeding your fish with your Pond King Floating Fish Feeder for years. We include a solar panel with a rechargeable battery and varmint guard as standard features on our all-aluminum, powder-coated fish feeders so you won’t have to worry about jammed mechanisms, dead batteries, flooded feed, failing timers, or damage from raccoons and other pests. 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.
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, or about 100 lbs per month. If after 10-15 minutes, you still see feed floating, it means you are feeding too much and should adjust your schedule accordingly.

All-Aluminum, welded, powder-coated body, and floats
The Pond King Floating Fish Feeder standard features include:
- Welded aluminum canister with powder-coat finish
- Four, welded all-aluminum floats
- 12-volt rechargeable battery and solar panel
- Programmable timer
- Varmint guard
Floating Fish Feeder options include:
- Feeder remote for on-demand feedings
- Weighted loop anchor kit
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.
