unfortuatly, we can't go near the inlets with nets or traps (within 500 ft). The one lake that does have suckers in it is part of the New York City water supply chain and they don't even allow electric trolling motors on them (row boats only). You can trap for bait on the lake but for use (supposedly) on that lake only. Trust me theres no easy sollution for this, I've been tring to figure something out for three years now. When I come out to visit my parents, I always bring a cooler full of them back, except for the ones I save for deadbait in the winter, those are gone real quick.
