I'm not worried, at this place nobody will know a thing, i could do it in the middle of the day and nobody would know, i'm just putting in 15 fish, maybe 10

You can trap "killies" in tidal creeks and save on the Fatheads. They are in the ponds I used to fish in Atlantic county so I know they can live in fresh water. Question is why aren't there fish in the pond naturally?

There are fish in the pond, just seems like theirs not too many and they're hard to catch you really got to work for them but i do catch them and it seems worth it to add some more i mean nobody even fishes there

Call Fish and Game in Trenton to see if they wouldn't supply the fish to stock.

What kind of fish? If not many there could be a reason and you could end up wasting money.

There's bass in there and i'm thinkin for $40 plus a few pounds of fatheads it's worth a try and the state won't stock it because the pond is only about an acre and will only hold so many fish, probably not worth it for them to come out here for that, besides i wanna keep it under wraps so the people who don't fish there don't start, for a permit i need a signature from the owner of the pond which would probably be someone from the parks dept. and our town hall aint open to visitors, believe me i wanna do it the legal way but it's gonna be impossible, if i can get away with sneaking ten more fish in there who's gonna know, after all i don't need a permit to buy them

Hey, I would try actually going down to the town hall where they provide building permits as well as others and speak to the supervisor that’s currently working. I feel as though you’ll save a lot more time then researching the internet and actually get quality information needed.. sorry I don’t have a direct answer but hope that helps.
Also, I just moved from Toms River to Point Pleasant.. Is there any good spots I can take my 5 year old fishing this time of year where he’ll definitely get some action or even myself and he can help reel it in??Brick or Point? He sees me go salt water fishing all the time and has been begging me to take him. Any info would be of great help. Thanks so much..
Keep your line wet!

Hey Tom, I've been out twice this winter without a bite so i can't promise any action, but you can take him to lake Shenandoah off 88 in Lakewood theirs a dock there you can fish off of, or if your from Toms River you must know where Ocean County Collage is, that pond there holds some nice bass but this time of the season they will be difficult to catch but you'll still have fun, hope this helps

Just dump them in after dark. Make sure the water temperature is about the same in the pond and the container you use to transport them or they can go in to shock.

I found a place that sells live fish pretty cheap, like $3.95 for a 6" lm bass and they have all other kinds of fish too so i want to put some fish in my local pond but it's a town park. The place that sells the fish wants me to have a permit to stock the fish. Does anyone know how i would go about getting a permit from the township to stock thisb pond with some bass and some fatheads for food, any ideas would be appreciated .


Be careful a small pond probably won’t mater much but it could decimate what lives there

Hey Lee, you should contact your local soil and water conservation district and see if they have semi-annual fish sales. This a pic of what our local group on offers. They or your conservation department folk should be able to help you.
That price you showed is definitely higher than it should be the way it looks.

Dude...if you gotta do it "after dark".....well, you know what your Momma would've told you about that "M.O.", don't you ?
Sounds sketchy, imo. Your call.
