    Anyone know what the laws are for Missouri. Ive looked all over the internet on the subject. All I can find is the Commercial fishing regs. Im assuming that snappers and sofshells are considered like game fish. I think i need a commercial fishing permit and thats it. Does anyone got any info??

    I just started building my own hoop traps myself ive just built 2 so far my second one turned out real nice my first one didnt look so good, but it will get the job done. Do you treat your own nets and if you do what do you use? Im sure there is a cheaper way than buying the netcoat from the net dealers.
    Where in Iowa are you from? Ive ran around up in Iowa quite a bit in the past and my inlaws are from SE Iowa.
    How much are you asking on your traps?
