Fathead minnows are considered both a forage fish and bait fish. Commonly sold in bait stores, fatheads are common all across the U.S.A. and Canada. They are farm raised in the south and harvested wild in Minnesota and other western states. Fathead adults typically reach about two inches, therefore, making a good feeder fish for starting a new pond. Because of their small adult size, it is nearly impossible to establish a permanent population in a pond that has bass, bluegill, catfish, and perch. These minnows can spawn up to a dozen times per summer laying their eggs on the under side of logs, sticks, rocks and anything else they can use. The normal life span of a fathead minnow is about two years.
