Hello.

The beginning of my tests.

It's not the small house flies that go in the bucket but the big green flies, the larvae will come out from the bottom.

I take the rest of the Perch.

cover straw on a couple inches on bottom and cover the dead stuff with a couple inches or so of straw as well. Flies with find their way to the fly buffet and stink will be less. I have advocated this for sometime to our fishing club and the response was if you feed the fish this way or with commercial food it would train them not to bite. The people in charge of this club are bat crap crazy. I am glad you are using a inexpensive way to feed fish naturally.

I have switched to pizza for food for my feeders. I have a pizza place that throws out pizzas at the end of the night I go by and get it get it a little wet put it somewhere with a good fly population let them lay eggs then place it in my floating feeder. It's covered with a plastic tote the eggs hatch and the larva feed then drop into the water. No smell at all but lots of larva

Hello.

The Yellow-perch fry are about 1 inch, so I installed the bucket.

Black soldier flies are also an option, less stink and great protein.

Hello.

To date it does not work.

If on the internet we can see video where the fish eat the fly larvae, the Yellow-perch refuses them completely and will even spit them out.

I will have to change my approach.

Hello.

I put the fly larvae in a bucket with wet oatmeal for a day, then I collect the larvae and put them in a dispenser under the light.

Last night I saw Yellow-perch fry eat larvae without spitting them out.
