Are bluegill legal for bait in OH? I say yes, my buddy says no. He says they are gamefish and gamefish cannot be used for bait. I can find no such law in the regs. I do know that other states I've lived in have regulations concerning this, but the published OH regs are so vague and nonspecific that the only law I see about bait is how many minnows or crawfish one can posess. What is the law about bluegill (or other species for that matter), and where can I find it in writing? Thanks.
