    Just wondered if anyone knew of any little farm ponds over run with fish out there where i could throw net some bait? Someone i could help out and still end up with bait. Ive got a guy down by me where i trade him his nusence bluegills for some live catfish in return....We are headed down to tappan for a tourney a week from saturday and figured why take my bait from public waters when i could save time while helping someone else out too!.....well thanks for reading and let me know! If you know of anything feel free to give me a call at (419)651-6144 THANKS!

    Cast netting bluegill is not legal. If I were to do it I would not talk about it.:wink:. Just letting ya know, they are legal bait but they have to be caught on a hook and line.....

    It is extremely LEGAL to castnet bluegills in a private pond! As long as you have the owners permission to do so!
    I had an old neighbor who wanted me to remove a hundred small bluegill from his pond. After stopping everyday for a week to feed them bread, I caught 83 in one cast!!!

    i had a guy with an overstocked pond but went to get some gills for tappan this weekend and the guy drained the pond and washed the mud from the shallows into the lil water that was left and killed EVERYTHING!:sad2: saw a few 8lb bass and 20 channels washed up on shore along with all my bait!:sad2:
