> i cant recall a recent ac article on minner traps. chris s?

The subject has been covered--albeit not too recently.

Feb. 1985 Ameican Currents
Warny, Peter R. Collecting with a Minnow Trap--"No Fuss, No Muss"
(Advantages, techniques and regulations regarding collecting with minnow traps)

1986 June American Currents
Williams, John Ben. Minnow Traps: A Native-Fish Collector's Best Friend
(Tips on using a minnow trap and a table of fishes collected)

Summer 1996 American Currents
Schmidt, Konrad. Minnow Trap Bait
(Minnow trap bait preferences by species)

If I had time, I'd summarize these for you. But I actually have to WORK today.
