Bream trap



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?

What part? Trapping bream or fishing with them?

If a guy named Daylower starts asking questions, just start throwing the term "hypothetically speaking" around

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

Pretty much the only thing an Op will bite. Never tried them as bait for anything else, but have caught several big bass on trot lines using live bream trying to catch Ops.

Guess I won't be building that trap. What is the concern I wonder about trapping bream. I don't think you could hurt their population without an insane amount of trapping.

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.

I always ask for the smallest shiners they have. You can get a big fish to bite a small shiner, but it is hard to get a smaller fish to bite a huge shiner.

A couple slices of bread and a castnet. Throw bread out in about 2'-3' of water in pieces and wait about 10 mins. Throw castnet over spot. Done.

I do this every year in my pond to help control the bream.

We catch some on baby buffalo, but pumpkinseed and long ear work the best from what I've seen.

Did that today and even hit a crawfish pond. A shite load of them, but they were less than a inch.

Guess I will have to set a few traps out tomorrow.
