I actually set it out on Sunday (3/9). I'm planning on checking it tomorrow, and I'll let you know if anything wandered in my minnow trap. Hopefully, they'll be a little sumptin supmtin, nibbling on that yummy bread I put in there. If not, it's gonna get packed up for the trip to FLin 2 weeks.

No, I'm retired Navy and I currently work for an outfit called Sea Search of Virginia.

We provide side looking SONAR services, charter services for scientists (primarily ODU and the Corps of Engineers), some salvage, and we are the Virginia contractor for Reefballs.

I work as deckhand and sometimes work as captain of the company boat,Sea Search I, when we have passengers for hire.

I was never assigned to Little Creek, although I once went to a short school there.

You may recognize the name from the radio. In January I left WNIS and WTAR after working for them for over five years.

Well, for those who don't have a cast net, a minnow trap is a relatively inexpensive way to catch yourself some baitfish. At however many dollars a dozen, I am quite certain that little thing has paid for itself. I haven't had to visit a baitshop for bait in years. I didn't realize there was such a variation of "food" for them little suckers, so all in all, posting this did exactly what I wanted it to. If it provided you with some sort of humor, great (I'll consider that a bonus to it's actual mission)!

Anyway, I have a round tube type. I got it simply because it fits easily in a bag behind the seat of my car, not taking up too much room. I HAD a box, but it was stolen (you leave things unattended on public property, it's bound to happen.

I also have 3 cast nets that I use, all depending on the situation (size of the whole I'm throwing in, depth I need to let it go down to in order to catch whatever I'm throwing at, etc...)

I have the old minnow pot with the inverted cones on the ends and an extension in the middle. It is 30 something inches long and a bit less than a foot in diameter.

I use a cast net when I can, but the pot is great in places where I can't throw the net.
