Awesome fish,I wish they could be trained to take non live foods.
I can. I thought the same thing about resfin,grass and chain. They eventually eat just about anything. I bought frozen (cant remeber the name) and they came around to then as if I was feeding minnows.

Frozen fish is what it was. Reluctant at first but eventually just destroyed it like it would a live rosey red.
.....was the fish smelt or silversides?

Silversides. And they are nasty as hell. But I always cut the tail off. Depending on the size you may noet need to ass. They arent big frozen fish. But are if you compare them to large rosey reds.

I find that they have a funny smell to them....and I don't know of any sources for muskie at this time.I got mine from another member who hasn't been active on the forum for quite a while.

Yeah wants they kind of thaw they ate disgusting IMO. I hate handling them.

Also, what's the actual name of these? I know they arent the typical pickerel.
