    Is it fair to use technology to catch such little fish? I am a cane pole & live bait fisherman & give the fish a sporting chance. Still dig my own worms.

    I haven't fished like that in quite a while but I am not too proud to use live bait if that is what it takes to put meat in the skillet. I still have some Heddon Lucky 13's I have used when nothing else worked. I know they are old but fish aren't educated on age of baits.

    Just because you find them does not mean they are going to bite

    Jeff, send me a few Crappies down here, I think they may make good Flounder bait.

    That's why I do the depth charge style of fishing, m-100 into water, fish float up, just net them up no hooks or bait required.

    Works good only if you can get the Game Warden to help you net!

    These were back from the 60s, at Cape Lookout, today, you would spend 10 days in the electric chair for
    possessing this many Flounder.

    I have heard of fishermen using a shocking device like a hand operated generator similar to what old military phones used for power. Here in the hills it is referred to as calling up the fish. I have been on fishing trips when you throw everything in but the tackle box & still not get fish. It has been tempting to use dynamite or a generator. An acquaintance was filmed calling up catfish by game wardens. He paid a steep fine & was told by the game wardens that they had the authority to seize his boat, trailer & truck.

    Even the old house magneto phones worked on catfish only, slick skin. antenna whiskers (no scales) game wardens frowned on this practice for sure.
