Actually, half the problem is people selling the fish (not red 
shiners) because when the appropriate folks go in and poison them all, 
someone puts them back in so they can keep making money out of them.  
The last thing you want is folks using them as bait too as they then get 
further spread around by ignorant fisherfolks.
