1 WEEK PELLET TRAINED SHELLCRACKERS March 28, 2022
For this video on a Mon I fed 'em 50 worms. Only a few came to my cinder block island, yet by Wed most were there. On Thurs 18 RES & 1 6" blk crappie attended and pellets were introduced. They took 4 of the 20 water soaked Optimal Bluegill pellets. Fri 7/20; Sat 14/20; Sun 18/20, should note that I left 2 pellets floating which may of sank to be eaten. Day 8 this video and only 1 container (25) worms. The water had cooled to low 50's with our cold snap, last nite 33 degrees. They weren't as cooperative with the pellets but as you can see, they still consider the Optimal 'Good Eats.' Edit: at 1 point I state, "fish trained" Shellcrackers meant "pellet trained Shellcrackers." These ladies & gents are pre-spawn. They should be at it with the April full moon and water back in the 60's.https://www.facebook.com/messenger_media/?thread_id=100000123554039...
Before the RES went in I stocked fatheads, gams, shiners, crayfish, grass shrimp, scuds, and daphnia. When the RES were babies I caged them up and taught them to eat pellets. They are not lacking for groceries.
Well I don’t know a thing about raising shell crackers but I would be ecstatic if they got this size in two years, awesome Greg
Caught that one within two days of the two year anniversary of stocking fingerlings.
That’s a good looking Redear Greg, how long has that fish been in your pond? Thanks in advance, Jeff
Very nice. Small ponds are lots of fun.
I have had the best success catching the buggers in a pond with only redear in it.
