    im not sure if its illigal but i found a trout hole with tons of rainbows i caught about 45 all around 2 pounds just from the dock limit was 5 a person per day so we got to keep 10 and as i was cleaning them i was thinking they would make great cut bait , im gonna check on it and maybe go catch more we gonna eat these .

    im pretty sure like 99.999999% that would be a bad idea. trout are a protected game fish in illinois. i sure wouldnt get caught doing it. if theres a limit on them there a game fish. and game fish are illegal to use as bait. if theres a length limit thay cannot be used cut either.

    How about this. Send me all the trout you can legally keep. In return,I will send you twice that amount of any sunfish,gizzard shad,carp,or any other non game fish you want for bait. Rainbow is too good to eat to waste.

    thats what i figured to begin with thanks for the responce jeremy .

    after searching through dnr site i learned that i need a trout inland stamp
    that i knew i needed just totally forgot about .

    guess i will get one tomorrow cause those rainbows at derby lake are wanting to be fried up ...lol

    we was catching the heck out of them on small rooster tails neither of us had trout tackle .

    we was actually gonna catch a few gills to use as bait and spent the day catching trout .
