i was wondering if anyone is having a problem with too many Golden Shiners. I caught a few this past week end about 5-6 inches and there seems to be schools of many different sizes, problem? or good thing? I have LMB, BG and CC

Too many forage fish is usually not a problem. Abundant forage fish usually creates a quality fishery. Your LMB should be thriving with extra forage available. If you want to remove fish of a specific size look into buying a relatively short small mesh gill net maybe 1/2"-1" mesh or a larger sized fish trap such as cloverleaf or Z trap. Fish the gill net perpendicular to shore. All fish caught in the gill net will be dead or going to die after removing them from the net. There are some net companies that sell monofilament gill nets.

Micro jig, a weighted casting bubble (slip bobber), and a 1/2" piece of nightcrawler.

They are pretty easy to catch with a small hook, I pulled 200+ out averaging 7" during the month of July with just a dozen nightcrawlers.

I used to catch them on corn when I lived in NY. I’d squeeze the hard part of the kernel out just leaving the “shell” so when they bit it, it would collapse and expose the hook. Also, a tiny piece of bread pinched onto a #12 hook. Smaller the hook the better.
