Heh heh -- I used a beetlespin when I caught the one below, but that's probably not typical...What is the best bait to use when fishing for cats at Falls Lake?
I'm pretty confused about bait catching regulations. I hear the striper fishermen talk about netting shad in inland lakes (ie. Jordan). What would be different about Falls? Are the rules lake-specific?Just FYI dont use a net to catch bait in Falls I had a Ranger stop me for doing that (I thought I was gonna get cited for it).
Thanks for all the great info on the nets.OK Just got off the phone with the ranger station. Here is the deal Beaver Dam area does not allow ANY use of cast nets ect to catch bait. Any shoreline that is governed by the state park does not allow the use of nets, but catching bait from shorelines contoled by the WRC or from a boat is allowed. The Ranger advised me that the reason they have been enforcing this lately was that there have been people using cast nets to take game fish, and they are trying to stop that. She also took my info and asked if she could bring this up at the next staff meeting. So I hope this clears this up, I just dont know what is Park land and what is WRC land.
