Is it legal to use a perch trap on Lavon?

basically its a wire box that they swim into but can not swim out of.

•May be used to take NONGAME fish only.
•May not exceed 18 cubic feet.
•Must be marked with a floating visible orange buoy not less than 6 inches in height and 6 inches in width. The buoy must have a GEAR TAG valid only for 30 days attached.
•Must be equipped with a degradable panel as described for crab traps.
•Buoys or floats may not be made of plastic bottle(s) of any color or size.

Guess I should have looked on their site, sorry about that.

I already have the trap as someone made me one. Oh well,  guess it would be easiler to get some corn and catch a few.

Thanks for all of your research. Thanks for your help.

Anytime btroy. I didn't know either, and it made me curious, since I have been using perch fillets to catch lately. I've been catching them with rod  & reel, a trap would be less time consuming. Smiley

Saltwater "perch traps" can only be used in saltwater.

But.... A "minnow trap" as described by the TPW is not bound to saltwater only.  My interpertation is , if used in saltwater, it must comply with the gear tag date validity rule.. I could be wrong , and suggest you clarify with TPW before setting one.

BTW , they are easy to make and even more easy to order. Very effective to.

 Minnow Trap:
May be used to take NONGAME fish only.
Trap may not exceed 24 inches in length. The throat may not exceed 1 inch by 3 inches.
In SALT WATER: GEAR TAG valid for only 30 days must be visibly attached.
