I thought the same thing until the water cleared up some. My minnows reproduced after a few months. Saw a bunch of fry swimming. The adults are still alive too. I think most of my bass eat pellets. I see a few still feeding on minnows every now and than.

I know I'm a fish moron, but what do you do with the fish you cull? I'm not cleaning that many fish! How do you dispose of them?

Critters eat them and there are always lots of folks that would love to eat them or stock their ponds

Build yourself a Black Soldier Fly Larva generator. They'll dispose of anything you throw in there...QUICKLY...and if you have or know someone with chickens, they'll eat the puppae and so will your fish.

Is that the 5 gallon buckets with an old vacuum hose that the maggots climb up and fall into the water?

You can set it up so they climb out and fall in the water, yes. I've started a thred about it you can read or look at YouTube. There's quite a bit of information out there on them.

It has virtually no smell to it at all. The only time I smell my generator is when I open the lid to add food. Even then it's not offensive. The larva dont leave anything long enough for it to rot. A 3 foot water snake was completely devoured in 30 hours. 11 inch crappie less than 24. Small fish will be eaten bones, head scales and all.
