You are walking into a huge gray area. Best would be to talk to a Warden directly. Many laws concerning trap size, placement, how many minnows you can have in possesion, infested waters etc etc.

I trap shiners on wholesale level and it is a steady stream of laws and bi-laws not to mention some very very spendy licenses.

as long as you dont have over 24 dozen of any one species thought aren't you fine?

There is also something I read about no trapping of minnows south of hwy 14 and west of hwy 59. I cannot remember where I read it though.

Illegal to possess more than 24 dozen leeches? So I'm pretty sure the pound of panfish leeches I bought last week puts me over the limit?
