Fathead Minnows are shipped safely in a double wall corrugated box (with insulation and ice packs when temperatures are above 80 degrees).  Your fish are safely secured in 3.5 mil double bottom sealed polyethylene bags containing pure oxygen.

We pack your fish to safely survive 36+ hours, but they should be released as soon as delivered.  Please prepare for delivery by having someone available to accept your order from your UPS delivery person OR leave a note indicating a cool, safe place to put the box until you arrive home to release your fish. 

We 100% guarantee your fish will arrive alive. In the rare case of a DOA situation, please notify us within 2 hours of delivery by email.  Unfortunately shipping costs are not refundable.   

The fathead minnow is found throughout the United States. Its small size and abundant reproduction makes it an excellent forage fish. The fathead minnow will spawn throughout spring and early summer.

Reproduction can be aided with the use of sunken ever-green trees or stacked pallets. The rapid rate of reproduction of this species makes it an excellent choice for stocking where predatory fish are present.

One year old fish range in size from 0.5 inch to 3 inches depending on temperature and food supply. Fathead minnows become sexually mature at 1 to 3 inches and seldom exceed 3 inches.

    Excellent Customer Service, extremely healthy fish

    Very pleased with both the fish and customer service. Todd (possibly Tim same person .. I have a lousy memory) was extremely helpful. I am stocking a new 1/2 acre 25' deep pond and I am hoping to grow large healthy largemouth bass and Todd helped me to understand the stocking process, types of fish to add, and how to control overpopulation. I highly recommend Smith Creek Lake & Pond. Special thanks to Todd (or Tim :-) for all his help.
