Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


Can fish live in small ponds that freeze?

Yes, and we have been raising native Minnesota game fish in 6 foot waters for over 16 years.  Winter can be stressful on northern fisheries, and properly sized and strategically placed aeration systems are your insurance against fish kills.  We warranty against winter kill, and can monitor your pond to make sure you don't have a problem sneak up slowly that will hurt your pond.  We will help you take care of those fish.

How deep does my pond need to be?

Give us 6 feet of water and we can bring you the fish.  Set up your pole with a heavy sinker and 6 feet of line to a small bobber.  If you cast it out and the bobber goes under, your in the game.

Do you have customer service?

Of course! Our friendly and knowledgeable customer services reps are available to answer your questions 24/7/365.  (maybe that is an exaggeration but we are here for the long haul).

What kind of fish can I raise?

DNR permits to stock are free and we handle all the paperwork.  Walleye, perch, crappie, bluegills, bass and catfish all do well in small ponds.  These fertile, nutrient rich environments see growth rates well above what most state waters can realize.  Many of these species will take commercial fish pellets that will quickly grow 1 pound bluegills and hundreds of pounds of filets every year.

Can I eat the fish?

You have to harvest some of the fish to help manage the pond.  Ponds in balance are only there for a short period of time.  Monitoring recruitment and predation allows to to harvest surplus fish for the table while protecting our biggest specimens to grow to trophy size.  Half the fun of pond management is the table fare.
