Our Optimal Bluegill line contains a variety of pellet sizes to target a wide range of fish sizes. However, freshly stocked fish tend to be smaller than the 5”+ range we recommend for the Bluegill line. Freshly stocked fish also can come with another challenge…they’ve never seen a fish food pellet before. Optimal Junior is designed to target both of these challenges.
Fish meal can be a powerful ingredient in feeds of all kinds. Many enthusiasts look for it on the label. Most people do not know that there are hundreds if not thousands of grades of fish meal. Each grade has its own strength and weakness, but one thing is certain, they are all different. Optimal Fish Food has decades of experience in creating, evaluating, and utilizing ingredients for aquafeeds. Through this experience, we have learned how to match the right protein source to the right goal.
Optimal Junior is created with very high-grade fish meal proteins called hydrolysates. These hydrolysates possess characteristics that increase palatability in most marine and freshwater species. By combining the right protein sources with a smaller diameter mixed lengths pellet size, Optimal Junior is the answer to feeding small newly stocked fish. Optimal Junior is a 42% protein and 10% lipid diet formulated for young finicky eaters. We have received stories of successfully feed trained fish ranging from redear to yellow perch, even muskie!
For use in feeding bluegill and other pond fish species. To minimize impacts on water quality, feed as much food in ten minutes as fish will consume. Feeding at the same time every day is suggested. For more feeding information and tips, visit optimalfishfood.com/feeding-tips.

I found out about Optimal Fish Food while doing research on the best fish feeds for bluegill. I decided to try it out and was pleasantly surprised to see how fast my bluegill grew and how healthy they are. When I come out to the pond you can see the ripples in the water as they make there way to the fish food. I highly recommend this feed to anyone who wants to see great advances in their fish!

My new coppernose and shellcracker have grown like mad in two months. Never seen a young thick bluegill before. I have now. Well worth difference in price to me.

I am completing my third year of feeding Optimal Sunfish food to bluegill and redear sunfish. They eat enthusiastically and consistently. Growth has been astounding and I am constantly impressed with their seeming addiction to the pellets. I am located on the shore of a 2 acre lake and the fish could choose to leave my waterfront, but they don’t. They return to eat every day, others hanging around and providing great underwater footage. Optimal food is the key. Fast delivery and great service.
