I prefer them fried and to be exact fried along with a big mess of fried country style potatoes with okra in cornmeal. up

That's great! I can't wait to restock myself but ours are brim full and I'm afraid if I stock now and it rains again they will be lost. I'm also gonna stock tadpoles, does anybody have experience with tadpoles?

Dunn's Fish Farm. Did ours back at the end of February. Had to drive about an hour to Corrigan...to pick up the order then race back to get them in the pond. You can check their delivery route schedule at their website, hopefully find a town near you. Typically, they deliver to one or more of the local feed stores.

Best to get the fish in your pond/lake within about 90 minutes of picking them up...or you will suffer greater mortality rates. DON'T just dump them in....you'll need to let each batch acclimate for a short period before releasing them...so allow time in your schedule.

By "acclimate", you're talking about placing the bags full of fish and water into the pond so that the water temp in the bag can equalize slowly to the temp of the pond, yes?

Yes that is what acclimate means. let the bags float in the pond near the bag so the temp can adjust. You can also pour some of the pond water into the bag after its been in the water for a few minutes and the temperature is adjusted. This will adjust the ph in the bag to that of the pond and it will not be as much of a shock to the fish when you release them.
