220-2-.39 Legal Methods of Taking Minnows and Shad for Bait
and Mullet in Freshwater
It is hereby made lawful to take minnows and shad by the use of a cast
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, dip net or
seine, commonly known as a 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. The use
of any seine of larger proportions than herein provided is illegal, and the
possession of a seine of larger proportions than herein provided in any public
freshwater or on the bank of any such waters shall be prima facie evidence that
such net is being used illegally. It is further made lawful to take mullet by cast
net in freshwater. The daily creel and possession limit for mullet taken with a
cast net will be the same as permitted under Marine Resources Regulation 220-
3-.03. All game fish and all commercial or non-game fish, except mullet, as
listed under Rules 220-2-.34 and 220-2-.45 taken by nets or seines as allowed
under this regulation shall be immediately returned to the water from whence
they came with the least possible injury.
