I have a little gas station 300 yards from my house that is supplied crickets by Ard's. He told me last week if I ever need minnows that he could have Ard's drop them off at the store I'd just need to leave my minnow cooler there. I told him to price a pound of minnows for me and I haven't swung by to see what they cost. I'll swing by and report my findings tomorrow.

Minnows by the pound is a thing in south florida and some other places. Just not here. Again. The best advice your gonna get is to learn to fish with jigs!

Used to live near Little Rock, AR and remember they claimed to have the worlds largest minnow farm just east of Little Rock. Believe it is Anderson's. Their web site is: http://www.andersonminnows.com/species3.php

They ship and sell by the pound, might give them a call

Yes sir you are right. Some old habits are hard to break. I was just wondering if they could be had by the pound.

Kevin what is the normal river level in your area or say Millers Ferry. I know it's way high.

Thanks

I ordered golden shiners from Anderson's last spring. Total cost with shipping was $100+. The picture on the site showed a hand sized fish so I thought I would get something similar. All were about 3". Not what I expected. Put them in my bait tank and all were dead in 24 hours. Froze them for later use.

One of my fishing buddies is down in Lake Wales, Fl fishing right now and he paid $8.00 for 1/2 lb. of crappie minnows. That's a very reasonable price compared to what we have to pay here by the dozen.

If a retail dealer started selling by the pound around here they would be swamped with buyers. As it is about $2.75 a dozen is what you pay here. Some bait shops are very generous with their count and some count them one by one.

According to one chart I found you get about 300 minnows per pound.

One of the reasons to buy per pound. I lost 3/4 of mine first time. Mostly because not enough oxygen for what I had.

300 per pound about right. Anderson's has a chart I believe that gives that depending on the size you want.
