What's an easy to catch a lot of these to use for bait ?
some people use a bait trap for them or you can fish for them with worms.
I thinks he is talking about bluegill.oooh:
Well this is the bluegill section , I thought it was implied that I was talking about bluegills. Sorry if I confused anybody.
i personally set out a trap and check it every day or so and put my spoils in my bait tank until i have a sificiant number for my next outing...if im running really low ill get some wax worms (which work better than meal worms or night crawlers JMO) and see what i can catch. ive also been known to chum them in with some bread and when a bunch start to feed throw a cast net over them...seems to produce a good number...
I love to fly rod for them with a small chartruse popper. I can usually put quite a few in the live well quickly and have a ball catching them on the fly rod as well. If you can't fly rod you should learn as it can be a great day of fishing.
With a flyrod. Use a #12 Black Ant. Let it sink slowly.
With bait. Use a #8 hook, and a small piece of worm/maggot/meal worm.
Worm and bobber works well. I use rooster tails in this one spot that i get them, it gets the bigger ones to bite.
In Ohio, it's actually illegal to use bluegille unless they have been caught on a hook. I don't know if any game official would ever check their little mouths for hook marks or what.
i use a utra light pole with bee mouth/wax worm a
I got a 12' extendable cane poll that I use. Takes a little longer but it sure is fun to have a big one get on that cane poll.
utra light pole with wax worms only way to go.
it is legal here to net them.. so i just throw a net.. its fast and effective..
He have good luck with a trap, but we don't always get all of the fish that we need. We catch them with worms and a small hook then
Crickets or the Rebel Crickhopper lure.:wink:
Find you a pond or lake get some wax worms , bobbers and poles and either take your kids or your kins kids or some neighbor kids and let them catch you a mess of bait plus they have fun doing it .
is using a castnet to catch them legal? thought it was only for like shad or something? am i crazy? lol
im in kansas. never done it, dont want too if its illegal. ive searched all over to see if its illegal.
I know in NC they are considered a game fish and it is illegal to net them. Don't know who is gonna enforce that, unless a wildlife officer catches you red handed. Read somewhere they can fine you up to 100 per gill, that's not including court costs.
