I remember that Bridge at Lake Wauberg as a catfishin' place! A place where folks that needed diner could depend on a catfish or two..
About four years ago this gentlemen started commercial fishing with three to five trot lines that total hundreds of yards in length.
Whatever bait he uses it's pretty effective! You can see him picking catfish off the line every ten feet or so.....
Catfishin' isn't much good at the Bridge .. anymore. Do you think there's a limit on how much he can take???? NO!
say they can't stop this kind of fishing:http://myfwc.com/fishing/freshwater/commercial/#trot
"A trotline limited to 25 hooks may be used for taking nongame fish for personal use. Persons operating more than 25 bush hooks or set lines or a trotline using more than 25 hooks are considered to be fishing commercially and must have a commercial license. All game fish taken by trotlines, bush hooks or set lines shall be immediately returned to the water, and it is unlawful to possess any game fish while operating trotlines, bush hooks or set lines.
Anybody want to bet on the number of hooks this guy is using??? ...or the number of folks gone hungry for lack of a catfish???
