View Full Version : Minnow Traps While Nightstalking

Do any of you guy trap you own minnows? Do you make your own traps or do you buy the traps outright? For night stalking can you trap minnows instead of buying them? Our state laws prohibit introducing any kind of fish into state waterways and since there are plenty of bait fishing the lake already, why not take advantage of that?

Once you pull bait into your under water light, use a cast-net to catch you some bait fish. Make sure a cast-net is legal to use in your state.

Some states only allow the use of minnow traps or throw nets only during daylight hours so check your local regulations.

It's perfectly legal in my state: Catching Bait for Fishing in Alabama (http://www.outdooralabama.com/fishing/freshwater/regulations/bait.cfm). There's nothing like Dixie's land.
