What it tells about?

A generation ago, minnows for bait were easily seined from lakes and streams. Now, however, because of a tremendous increase in the number of fishermen, these natural waters cannot supply angling needs.

The demand for additional new sources of bait led the New York State Conservation Department in cooperation with Cornell University to explore the possibilities of raising bait fish in New York ponds. Tests conducted in 90 ponds demonstrated that the golden shiner, fathead minnow and white sucker can be raised successfully in New York in properly designed ponds.

In planning a bait pond, for the farm bait pond, the site is important. 3 characteristics are important for a suitable pond site:

  1.  Topography that can be converted into a pond economically.
  2.  Sub soil that contains enough clay to hold water.
  3.  A water supply that is adequate but not excessive.

Important points for the production of bait fish 

  • The ponds that have to do the bait fish production must have enough water supply in them. Fish production is increased by feeding in the availability of fresh water.
  • For the harvesting of bait fish, the only satisfactory method of harvesting the entire crop of bait fish is to drain the pond.
  • Similarly, this publication gives us the information regarding the raising of Cray fish too.
