So there is no limit how come we cant use em for bait. F&G wants em gone. I personally would catch some in the winter for fresh bait if we could use them for bait. Im sure others would also. Who might we talk to to get this changed?

We would probably have to start with the Board of Fish, since they set the sport regs.  After that, maybe Board of Game to address it in the trapping regs as "allowable".

Since they are an invasive species  (I think?) it would seem that they would be glad to
add any incentive they could to get people to catch them.   Probably something that
would be worth persuing.   Might be that making a blanket regulation allowing ANY
invasive species to be used as bait would be something to consider.
