    all, dose anyone know of any bait shops near the NE that
    sell live suckers and possibly even isreali carp?iam not sure
    but i think is a good bet that theres not many shops carrying any
    good sized bait fish (except shiners)in my area.i figured that some
    or most of the shops from at least New Philly to Tappen/Salt Fork
    areas would carry them?can anyone point me in a good direction?

    Email Corey as I think he could help you out better on this one! I know the one bait place at Salt Fork did have Israeli carp earlier this year, but I am not even sure what one looks like. :eek: I will have to look it up now! :p

    Eddie's at Nimi carries big baits. I carry Suckers, Chubs, and Goldfish. The Dam Bait Shop at Seneca carries them also.

    Greg,

    Did you ever give Tench a thought? Or did you already try those? Can't remember. I need to make a trip to WA to catch some. Either that or fly overseas.......which wouldn't bother me any ;)

    i have some tench operations going on,have been for
    awhile.but their a tough fish to track down here in wild
    (green)form.i can get the gold form,alot easier than the
    wild(neither is really easy to track).but iam in contact with
    an ''free- lance''exotic fish importer who can get things done!
    has gotten several people Wels,this guy gets stuff even zoos/
    and the Shed aquarium cant touch ;) legaly i might add.

    theres just NO market for the all cool, cold water cyprinids :D

    Tench, IMO, are one of the best looking fish around. Just wish we had them around here :(

    yah,they are not just good looking,but its said and
    i guess a bit of evidence to support it,that their skin/slime
    is like a medication for other fish with healing power.
    the ''doctor fish''they are sometimes called.i know they are
    soaked in slime,very slippery like a bar of soap.they could do
    alot of good for alot of species in our waters IMO.

    Only problem is......they were introduced in waters around here back in the 60's and 70's, but they didn't survive. Saw an initial stocking list in the US on CAG somewhere. I"ll see if I can locate that list again.
