    Not exactly rock chunking distance, but closer than most, LOL, I've ordered a Bass Pro shop catalog and I feel relatively sure there will be one in there I can order.
    Thanks

    Any bait shop in your area should have them, IMO.

    My wife was not crazy about my idea to breed minnows, she said it would stink the house up. Would it stink the house up any worse than a freshwater aquarium?

    It shouldn't, unless you do not care for it as you should.. I still think that breeding minnows would take more effort than just buying a trap and tossing it in the river (or lake, pond, stream, whatever) for an hour.

    That's kinda what I thoght, a fish is a fish is a fish, I more than likely get a trap although, I would have liked trying to breed them.

    Well, I'm with just about everyone else. It is cheaper in the long run to just either buy bait for each fishing trip, or catch your own and only hold them until you need them for fishing. That way you can have a fairly bare tank that is easy for cleaning and can be put somewhere out of site.

    In some areas there are issues with live bait and restrictions on species. That being said, it's a good idea to trap in/near the areas you will be fishing.

    If you are die-hard about breeding, and it is legal in MS, fathead minnows are the fastest, easiest bait (why else are they sold as feeders in LFSs? haha). But you must consider time and expenses for raising the fry up to a fishable size. Like mentioned, I'd just go trapping and hold the fish temporarily until you run out.

    BTW, I think dry dogfood is a jam-up bait for minnow traps.
