Different State Fishing Regulations
Don't confuse crawfish traps with Minnow traps!

 Currently I am in the process of checking the different regulations for crawfish in the different states concerning my Grand Daddy Trap. I'll include other information as well per state as I find it. This will be a long process so check back often for updates.
