i really think i could do this. i have 2 220's and i know a fish can fit into it. i fish a little bridge about 10 feet from a spawning grounds with dogfish, carp and gar. Do you guys think if i can drop a 220 connibear trap down into the water and a fish runs into the trigger and i have a rope attached to the little loop for the steak. do you think i could actually catch a rough fish this way? i really think i can and i will try next april/march. would it be legal to do? because i never seen a law that said i couldnt do it!:lol: :big_smile: :cool2: now i think this is a serious question yet i laugh at asking. people laugh at what i think of but i think i can catch more this way than snagging with my rod. plus to add my chances, i can add bait to the trigger to attract fish! well i appreciate your comments but please dont say im stupid for saying this.
