Yea that makes no sense to me. I watched a episode of michigan out doors and the dnr was using them for bait on the st clair river for catching sturgon yet we cant use them?

They make great bass bait. I think the dnr should let us use them in turn thinning out the population of them nasty things

I may be wrong but this was discussed before as long as they are dead you can transport them its the alive ones that are against dnr regs

If this turns into a discussion please everyone remain civil

thats too funny but as far as the bait purpose one of the hardest htting eyes ive ever had was when I was fishing off the wall in Port Huron with crawlers and a goby hooked himself and a walter hit him and slid him on up the line that walter was 27.5" 4.5lbs and a nice fighter.. Now my question is since I didnt know the goby was on there coz they cant ring the bell is that legal??

perfectly legal
as long as u didnt hook the goby then its legal
now a dnr arguing that its illegal would be a different thing

Gobies are not endangered species, they are an INVASIVE species. the are not native to these waters and the DNR does not want them using them as bait because of the possible spread into other lakes that do not have them.

ALthough, didn't someone post a study or something a ways back that said the gobies are giving a positive effect on teh ecosystem due to all of the fish eating them. i wouldn't be surprised. bass, walleye, pike, adn even perch are eatin them.

I've found many gobies in the bellies of fish that I've caught, taken home and cleaned. Fond some in the bellies of some fish I cleaned just the other day.
