That's a big difference.
    size of the shiners might come into play ?
    and golden shiners I think you are talking about only spawn once a year .
    but without knowing for sure what they are calling "shiners" it would be hard to know for sure .
    to raise them to bass bait size might get a bit pricey ?
    sure is a big price differential . likely do to the size of the bait is my thought
    BIG shiners here are expensive like that as well .
    and "minnows" are much cheaper .

    That's a big difference in price for sure! Think I would go with the small ones and double up the numbers in my bait bucket!
