personally, I wouldn't stock bluegill the first year. I'd wait and see what mother nature brought me in terms of bluegill.......their eggs get carried pond to pond, buy egrets and herons. same with frogs.
it's also a good idea to stock a few sterile grass carp, so the pond doesn't get over grown with grasses. a one acre pond is good size, and should produce bunches of edible fish. heck, I'd throw some channel, or blue cats off in there also.
