Everybody knows that using live bait is the best way to ensure a great catch.   Unfortunately, there are also concerns that the transport and use of live baitfish might move dangerous diseases, undesirable fish species, invasive plants, and even exotic animals like zebra mussels. In addition, harvesting baitfish from the wild may reduce the supply of natural food and limit the growth of sportfish.  How can you be sure that you will have a great fishing trip, but that your bait will not cause problems in the environment?

Use only baitfish Certified by the Arkansas Agriculture Department to be farm raised and free of invasive plants, exotic animals, and dangerous diseases!
