I've seen hatchlings in the wild taking river shiners that beach themselves on the shore and presumed this is a large portion of their early diet. I don't think wild snakes avoid fish with thiaminase, their diet just has a lot of variety. You could mix things up with finger bass, tadpoles, mudminnows, darters etc from the nearest creek even in winter. I wouldn't expect a young snake to take prepared food, they haven't lived long enough to provoke the feeding response.
