    hey zeb, check the proclamation i'll do the same.. as far as i know, you cant transport live fish and i dont think you should use fish from one water in another. thats how chubs got into some of the waters they really shouldnt be in .. there is also the possibility of speading disease and other such pests. i think it is ok to use them at some waters though but i think you should check first. where do normally fish?

    i should have been a little more cleare i was meaning catching them and using them in the same body of water. so there isnt a chance to spread disease and them nasty little chubs. thanks for the reply.

    i was thumbing through the proclamation today and in the taking of non game fish section it says that you can use archery rod and reel or traps.
    so i am going to build carp and chub traps so i dont have to fight with them 10 or 15# carp on my ultra light ugly stick with 6# test. and risk being broken off in the weeds at the pond i fish at.

    i didnt know that it iced over. i thought that it didnt ice up at meadow creek. it probably isnt very safe though the dwr sais that it has to be over 4" thick to be safe. if you want to we could go to holmes creek. me and my mom limited out using ratfinkee's tipped with a wax worm. if you want we can go next weekend and give it a try. talk to ya later thanks by.
