I have adjacent creeks and ponds that I have been putting minnow traps in and I have caught some BG, Minnows, baby Carp, and Waterdogs. I assume the Waterdogs are in my pond too, haven't caught or seen any in there. But I've been throwing the ones I catch in the pond. I've only thrown a couple of dozen in there this weekend. Is this a bad thing? Or will my LM eat them and enjoy the little treats? Thanks!

I think they won't last long. LMB snacks.

LMB will clean house on them. The problem is when waterdog eggs hatch in a forage pond.. They are extremely aggressive predators.

No harm in waterdogs. They make terrific live bait, especially when bass are on the nests.

The best giant bass lake I ever fished, Lake Jackson in Tallahassee, Florida, had abundant waterdogs/watersirens.

No problem and I agree that they won't last long

Awesome! I tried to use one for bait but he kept holding onto the hook trying to get it out of his bottom lip...I guess I need to hook him in the back so he swims...LOL. Thanks everyone!!!
