The Live Fathead Minnows are found throughout the United States. Its small size and abundant reproduction make 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 Live Fathead Minnows makes it an excellent choice for stocking where predatory fish are present. One-year-old fish range in size from 0.5 inches to 3 inches depending on temperature and food supply. Live Fathead minnows become sexually mature at 1 to 3 inches and seldom exceed 3 inches.

Very happy with the order👍

Fatheads for the Pond

I recently ordered a shipment of $5 00 fathead minnows. They arrived about the time that they said they would. I was a little bit disappointed that the ice had totally melted and a few didn't survive but all in all I'm quite happy.

I intend to get more minnows in the spring and to restock the pond with bluegills and bass when I think it's appropriate. I will be anticipating using you in the future.
