NFC: Re: panfish, gamefish, baitfish

There is not size limit on Sunfish or catfish in PA, and small ones are
considered baitfish and fall under the regs of baitfish collection, which in
PA is no seines bigger than 4'x4' and if you leave a trap unattended it must
have your name, address, and phone number on it. A regular fishing license
is all thats needed. Also the fish commision is more than happy for people
to remove small bluegills and other sunfish since they get so overpopulated
in most areas.

confused about exactly what is considered game fish. Are all panfish,
gamefish and if so, then the only way to collect them would be with a
fishing rod, using a net would be illegal.

breaking the law when I netted small, one inch long sunfish and bullheads.
