Open Fridays and Saturdays 9:00am to 3:00pm, Don't forget Koi Day Sunday, May 16th
We will bag the fish, oxygenate the water and seal the bag with a heavy duty band. If ordering catfish we ask that the customer have a 5 gallon bucket per 25 catfish needed. You can bring a large cooler, plastic tub or 5 gallon buckets to set the bags in. This simply keeps the bags stable during transport to your pond.
If we are open, it is a good time to stock your pond. Cooler days cause less stress on the fish. We do temporarily close for a few weeks in the dead of summer during July and August due to heat. We open back up for fall and close for the season after Thanksgiving. Our opening and closing are weather dependent but otherwise we are open rain or shine through the season.
We recommend 10 grass carp per surface acre and they will take care of everything but cattails and lily pads. In addition to grass carp you can add pond dye, this helps cut the sunlight to the plants and slows down photosynthesis to slow the growth even more so the grass carp can help get it under control. We have both Diploid and Triploid Grass Carp.
While diploid grass carp don't readily reproduce in a pond or lake some states require that only Triploid grass carp be used. Triploid grass carp are certified sterile and definitely will not reproduce.
Kansas and Arkansas now require Triploid grass carp only
When kept in the shade and cool, fish can survive in the bag up to 3 hours. However, exposure to sunlight and high temperatures will reduce the time they can safely spend in the bag. Always keep fish out of direct sunlight and transport them to the body of water without delay.
