Sorry if this is the wrong area to ask, but I wasn't sure where exactly to post. Is it legal to use sunfish I've caught to fish for catfish in the same lake? I'm a new angler and I just don't want to have any issues with a game warden. If I'm interpreting correctly, I'm sure that it is since they aren't listed as a game fish, but I just wanted to be 100% sure before doing so.

Legal👍...I love the smell of chopped Bluegill in the morning! Smells like...Victory!


There is a fine line between fishing and floating around like an idiot!!

I wish they would change the rule to no “edible” part of a game fish. Let me filet them, then use the heads.

Cut works well, live works even better!

Cut up Bluegills is a great catfish bait.
I like to cut them from them into 1” wide pieces from the back down to the belly.
When hooked thought the back meat the 2 belly flaps being thinner has great action.
These baits will catch 2-3 catfish before needing a new bait.

welcome Great job checking the regulations before proceeding. You can use any non-game fish as bait. There are restrictions in transporting live bait from one lake to another, mainly to prevent the introduction of zebra mussels.
