Question from previous topic. Do you keep them fresh or frozen? I would think that if you can, you would use them as fresh live bait. But it seems if they are caught during runs then you would freeze them for later use. Also, since they run from salt to fresh water is there any chance of catching them in the back bays in the Wildwood area? Finally Dip Nets .... Are they just a net with certain size mesh that you put in the water and catch the bait? Where do you find the regs as to legal use. Thanks for all info to the newbie.

I only run them frozen for spring Fluke and as a strip bait at that. I like to chunck fresh Herring in the early spring and run them live a little bit later in the season. Anytime they are running you have the chance to catch them, in the rivers or bays, all you need to do is locate them and apply the proper catching technique, cast net, sabiki, snaghook or dip net. I do not believe there is a regulation regarding the mesh size only the diameter and depth of the dip net. Dig around some sites they may have the regs for 2006, try the Fish and Game or DEP?

I guess there's no depth (min @ max) for the dip nets only a max diameter of 24inches. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I could have sworn I read there was a maximum depth allowed for a dip net but I may be mistaken.
