Damnbusia hug the shallows, though, so there is no need to float a
minnow trap there, either.  The kind of water I usually see damnbusia in
is SO shallow, in fact, that I doubt a minnow trap would be highly
effective (though I've been able to seine and dipnet them like crazy).

Sure I guess it could.  But have you tried this?  Wondering how
effective it would be.  Still, for fish that huge the grass and weeds in
the shallows, nothing beats a dipnet.  Instant gratification without the
worries of a thief or vandal ruining your efforts.
