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.

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?

    • Here is hoping for a dry October.
    • I didn't get the elm creek park hunt this year   I guess I will sit right outside the park and hope they chase them out again.
    • I am not one to post on here much but I am always "Lurking in the shadows". Anyway I have a question about a Grand Prix I bought a few years ago. When I first acquired the car it would up shift into the next gear as soon as you stepped on it fairly hard making for a rather uneventful and slow accelerating process. I figured this was normal as it was the only thing I found unusual. Then after awhile it begin to shake subtly when accelerating in first and second gear after second gear it would accelerate flawlessly. in the last few months it has begun to develop a fairly bad jerk when stopping and then going again. This ONLY happens after driving long distances. It never happens if I drive under 100 miles .Also it only happens about 1/3 of the time after driving these long distances. It will still accelerate slowly until about 3 mph and then it will jerk fairly hard when it does happen. Any Ideas what would cause this? The long distance thing is what confuses me.
    • What a load of dung question.  In your eyes no one could respond with a "rational" explanation. Johnson knew what it was going to take to get into the debates when he decided to run.  He failed up to this point so suck it up. Maybe you and Dave can get together and drown your tears together over a couple cold ones.
    • Do you have any rational explanation why a candidate who is on the ballot in all 50 states, and has a petition to be included in the debates with over 1 million signatures on it, should not be in the debates? https://www.johnsonweld.com/debate?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=tweet&utm_term=GJ-09-23&utm_campaign=debate
    • This was Sunday morning after we set decoys. Maybe the duck dock is to comfortable......
    • Sweety, son and I are both-In. Will try and hold out for a buck but no Deer in the freezer so if it's Brown its Down!
    • I may have missed it when I dozed off in the middle of the "debate", but I don't believe there was any mention of Aleppo in the whole affair...    
    • Del drops the mic.   Nice dodge.   How would Del know what Trump and Clinton are thinking or are afraid of (if they are afraid of anything)?
