ok so i checked the NC regulations site today (just to make sure nothing has changed recently) and this is what it said. and the phrasing i am confused about is in bold " [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]A resident may fish with natural bait in his county of residence without a basic fishing license in inland public waters. "Natural bait" is any bait which may be beneficially digested by fish. An individual must carry a form of identification that indicates the name and current address. This exemption does not apply to the special trout license.[/FONT] " so here is my question Dose stink bait and comercial baits fall under this duristiction? i mean can they be Beneficially Digested by fish? what are your opinions?
