Bream buster with small pieces of shrimp around docks has always worked for us.

Good stuff. Thanks. Ive heard folks catching them off the old Pitt St pier and Sullians. Just trying to find a spot where they load up.

Could you set a trap out with some frozen chum in it?

I've read it's against the law to trap them! But have never checked it out with DNR

Talked to 3 DNR officers in the same DNR boat out of Georgetown a few weeks ago. All 3 said that as to their knowledge that there is nothing illegal about having or using pin fish traps in SC waters.

And that's a major flaw in our DNR regulations. I've had the same conversations with LEOs in Charleston and have been told the opposite. Laws should be easy to understand. You shouldn't have to study the law in order to interpret it.

2X on being told no by DNR. I was told that I would be arrested for using what they called a "fish trap".

What is the difference between traping them and a mud minnow?

I will tell you that I sat on the rocks next the the Shem Creek ramp and absolutely loaded up on pins. Small hook with a tiny piece of shrimp and a cork. The fishing trip that followed, the grouper sure seemed to favor them.
