NANFA-- winter collecting
Sun, 19 Jan 2003 14:46:34 EST

Getting cabin fever, as soon as ice is out I plan on seining to fill the least a little at a time. I am aware of the techniques using
five gallon buckets, letting the fish acclimate over night and even doing
partiall water changes until temps are within a few degrees...but other than
that is there any reason not to collect during cold weather? Will it be
impossible to keep the fish alive if they undergo a 25 degree change in temp
over a two or three day period? Has anyone attempted this before?
