Is there a limit to the number of traps you have? How many can you keep? I do know that all females must be returned to the water immediatley.

Does anyone know of any good lakes to catch the big daddy's?

You can have as many traps as you want, but there must be a tag on each with your name, address, license number, etc. There is no limit for personal use and the females only have to be returned if they have eggs. Use canned catfood with holes punched in the lid or the cheap bags of chicken wings from Wal-Mart. I have heard of people using carp meat but haven't tried that yet. Palmer Lake has a ton of good sized Dads and I'm told 11 mile has some HUGE ones. I'm still looking for a honey hole here in the Brighton area to consistantly catch them. Irrigation ditches should be good now as well as the irrigation/retention ponds if you can get permission from the farmers.
Good luck!
