Well, I'm looking at the regs right now: "...legal to take minnows and shad by the use of a cast net, dip net, minnow jug, minnow basket(not to exceed 24 inches in length, 12 inches in diameter, with funnel entrance not more than one inch in diameter) or minnow seine, the length of which shall not exceed 25 feet and the width or depth of which shall not exceed 4 feet for the purpose of taking shad or minnows for the exclusive use as fish bait. All game fish and all commercial or nongame fish taken by nets or seines must be immediately returned to the water from whence they came with the least possible injury. Dip nets may by used to land legally caught fish." Legal is by "hook and line (artificial lure, live bait, troll or spinner...)"
Heck, they even have rules against dropping explosives over the side to stun the little rascals!
