Never heard of such. Sold by the dozen, 1/2 dozen.
Maybe at Walmart? They got frozen minnows, probably sold by weight.

Live minnows? It is very difficult to keep minnows alive. I have a 300+ gallon tank with filtration and still haven't been able to keep fish alive. Best to buy them as you need them.

Yes sir they are sold by the pound. I may not find them in NWF but they do sell them.

I understand what you are saying. I think the key is the water temp being to hot. It's tuff here in the south but can be done. I've done it before.

Best bet would be to find out from the baitshop who they Are buying from ans call him. When he comes that direction, meet up with him. I believe most come from a farm in Mississippi. Around here anyway..

Thanks Joey. I know there is a big farm in AR that ships every where. I'm sure there is places by you that might help. I've tried contacting a couple places here but want talk.
I use to get them when I wanted or need them back where I come from.

Try Ard's Cricket Farm in Westville, FL. Don't know how far that is for you but if they deliver crickets out your way then it might not be too bad.

Skiff I have called them 3 times and left messages. I haven't heard from them yet. I know where they are I might just drive up there. I was hoping to get info without having to drive there. Thanks.
