Default 250 Thousand Shiner Fry?

Anderson minnow has an air freight minnow deal for about $500 after shipping for 250,000 shiner fry. Has anyone tried this? Is it a good deal?

Sounds like a nice deal for a starter pond. Stock them this year and allow to develop then in a couple years adopt the predator fish.

That's a good deal. I have dealt with them in the past. Only thing is I would get the process going now because they require ohio paperwork to import the minnows. It was easy for me because I have an aquaculture permit.......should be easy enough for you.

Dang. I hadn't checked the price recently. I've been planning a pond for years and now I'm on the cusp of my first. I'm trying to be patient and get a massive forage base (fathead, shiners, crawfish) in before attempting to stock fish for catching. Has anyone tried the fry stocking deal? They list a "Black Salty" as well. There's not alot about that species breeding habits, but the adults look big enough to fend for themselves against larger prey.

Dont do black salty........golden shiners would be a better bet. But only when you get some bass that will eat them. They will get too big for bass to eat if you stock them before getting a preditor base. Fatheads have done well for me the past two years.
