The Shiner

The Golden Shiner is I.F. Anderson's benchmark species. Due to sophisticated and proprietary technology developed over the past half-century plus, I.F. Anderson Farms hatches one billion .. that's billion, with a "b" ... golden shiners annually.

Twelve months a year, I.F. Anderson maintains a readily-available inventory of carefully tended Golden Shiners. In a broad variety of sizes for virtually every species of freshwater gamefish, I.F. Anderson Farms offers a Golden Shiner minnow to meet every angler's discriminating needs.

The Fathead

As forage species go, and for getting farm ponds and lakes off to an optimal start, there is no substitute for the Fathead Minnow. The Fathead also makes an excellent live bait.

The fish are sorted and sold in three different sizes.

The Goldfish

I.F. Anderson Farms has long produced the healthiest and most dependable Goldfish in the country. The fish are raised and shipped in three different sizes, Feeder size, Trotline size, and Pool size.

Feeder fish, as the name implies, are primarily used to feed larger predatory species kept in aquariums large and small. Due to the species' extremely hardy nature, aquarium managers can keep Goldfish on-stock and in-hand year-round, as livewell mortality is extremely low.

Sizes

Fish are graded by width, so the length and counts are approximate

Type Count Per Pound Size/Length Shipping Box Size
Feeder 1,500 1 Box
Trotline 25-30 2 - 4 1/2 5 or 10 lb Box
Pool 12-15 4 1/2 - 7 5 or 10 lb Box

Black Salty

After several years of intensive field testing, I.F. Anderson Farms owner Neal Anderson's innovative, all-purpose brainchild has more than proven itself. The scientifically-developed, farm-raised Black Salty live bait (patented) is available in three sizes: inshore, offshore and the XL "Magnum", and all three have collectively confirmed that the super-hardy, saltwater-resistant Black Salty is indeed "The Ultimate Live Bait" in both saltwater and freshwater.

In freshwater, the Black Salty is a highly-effective and proven offering for largemouth bass, catfish, striped bass, hybrid stripers and other gamefish species. Offshore in the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic, king mackerel, cobia, red snapper, dorado, tuna and a host of other species have all been consistently taken on the Black Salty. In the bays and estuaries, saltwater speckled trout, redfish, flounder, Spanish mackerel, sharks, huge striped bass and other predators readily go for the baits.

It's a fact: If it eats baitfish, it will eat a Black Salty.

Anglers need only clean freshwater and bubble aeration to keep Black Salty baitfish alive and frisky for days, and even weeks at a time. Available year-round, the Black Salty is the all-encompassing, highly effective answer to increased pressure on and decreased availability of native bait stocks nationwide.
