SALTED

Salted baits are legal in most states and Canada. We offer Smelt, Shiners, Fathead Minnows, River Dace & Suckers in sizes from 1.5" to 12"(depending on species) & vac-packaged. 

Salt flavored baits provide several advantages: ease of use, excellent storage, mobility, and encouraging the "bite"! 

USPS or FedEx shipped.    



P & P

P&P Bait are "processed & preserved".

Our method maintains the near natural color, texture, full-body shape of a live fish.

This bait has incredible durability on the hook & shelf-life of months in the original unopened package stored @ 60F or less.  Freezer storage can be up to 2 years. This bait is freeze-thaw stable, able to go thru multiple cycles without turning mushy! 

P&P baits were developed as a "trolling" bait but have since been appreciated by ice and  stream anglers. 

Best used for trolling or casting!

USPS or FedEx shipped.

CANADIAN & ALASKAN CUSTOMERS ONLY

ANS-AIS-HACCP:

Harmon Brook Farm & Maine Smelt Hatchery initiated  

ANS-AIS-HACCP program in 2003 & submitted our plan to Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife Fish Health Lab July 23, 2003


Years of effort to persuade MDIFW and the Fisheries Division to implement a state sponsored ANS-AIS-HACCP program in Maine, ended with "zero" results, 

Our program is based on the work done by Jeffrey L. Gunderson
Minnesota Sea Grant College Program, University of Minnesota and 

Ronald E. Kinnunen
Michigan Sea Grant College Program, Michigan State University.

 

Our ANS-AIS-HACCP program is  fully operational for all species(live, dead, frozen) sold in Maine, 35 other states and Canada.  


We encourage all participants in the Baitfish Industry to embrace this program and diligently pursue the concept of Safe Bait in Maine.
