I want to get shad at a lake that is under the 300 acre limit for the use of a casting net. I talk with a guy that was rowing over a massive school of shad;just wondering if is legal to use a dip net to scoop them into the boat for bait to catch catfish??

LIVE BAIT FOR PERSONAL USE
(301 KAR 1:130, 1:122)

All sport fish incidentally taken
while capturing live bait with seines, dip
nets
or cast nets must be released
immediately unharmed into the water

Sounds like it's legal "to me" ?

Also NOTE This:

Sport cast nets prohibited in: 1) lakes
having fewer than 500 surface acres, 2)
