Bream trap (Posted on 1/29/13 at 12:58 pm)
Just saw some pretty easy directions online for making your own for -20$ . I've recently been experimenting with bass/ sac a lait fishing with shiners with mixed success. The main issue seems to be the availability of shiners that are 2+ inches at local bait shops. Who uses live bait for bass and what?
quote: Bream (Lepomis spp.) may not be taken as bait for sportfishing purposes in any form of trap except at Toledo Bend Reservoir, where a minnow trap not exceeding 24 inches in length and having a throat no larger than one inch by three inches may be used to take bream for non-commercial bait

I remember running nets with these commercial fishers and they were throwing back white pearch the size of basketballs. I couldn't believe my eyes. I didn't know it was illegal to sell "game fish" at the time.
