Excellent bass forage, GSH spawn once a year. In an established pond, I beleive I would try Anderson's 250,000 GSH fry for $250 deal (next year).

They spawn in vegetation next to the shore. Before they were eliminated from my pond, I would see bunches of them getting busy in shallow water where grass/weeds hung over the banks.

250,000 for $250??? That's a dollar a thousand?? How can they possibly raise fish that cheap?

The fish are just hatched so they are 1-2 millimeters in length.

So who counts them??


I am kidding, after I posted that last night I thought about it, if you are talking newly hatched fry, yep, they would be quite tiny and virtually have no overhead. After all, the activity that produces them is still free, especially in Arkansas.
