<< It would also
be neat to have a paddle fish in my pond after I train it to eat pellets I
could see it when I feed the fish. I have trained other filter feeding fish
to eat pellets and I have read that paddlefish can be trained to do the same.

Pellet fed paddlefish released to the wild are known to go after lures.
