If you don't have a commercial license to sell bait, then please don't be selling bait on this site.

Bill's live bait on Washington st has live and should have frozen suckers.

Just a simple question
If we can't use live bait like suckers, perch, and other small fish species
Why do they sell them
Most of our lakes are jam packed with suckers
I've caught mine out of george town for years now
Kill them on the spot.
G town is loaded with them

riper69 . . . .you need to do your home work . . . .there are places you can use cut bait(panfish) and other places you can use dead or live suckers.Where are you finding live Perch/pan fish for sale?Who ever said suckers were small?

So where CAN you fish with live suckers then?

Colorado has very simple rules for any Live Aquatic Bait-

Only allowed on Eastern Slope, and always below 7,000 foot elevation.

Eastern slope is ANYWHERE East of the Continental Divide.

Thanks yeah I've always wondered about using live suckers at tarryall and other lakes but always thought it was not allowed.. I'll have to watch the 7000 feet elevation rule

Yeah for sure
You see how easy it is to get confused
And that's how are water's get species that shouldn't be there

riper69 . . I'm retired(on vacation 24/7)back to my question, so where did you say they are selling perch and other pan fish for bait?
 Reply by: El Jefe      Posted: 11/28/2020 5:09:04 PM     Points: 389    

Can you post the link to the CRS whereby an individual is required to have a commercial license to sell frozen (dead) fish?

I can't find it anywhere.

In my post I never say anything about buying
For people who fish we catch our own bait don't buy
I even use the studs out of echo lake to catch the kokes at the snake river inlet
Like I said simple question
We should be able to learn from this site
Like I said cheers

El Jefe,

Check out this website for the fishing regulations: [log in for link]
It references four Colorado Revised Statutes on the last page if you want to dig deeper.
