      You can also try a seine if it is legal for you.

        the commercial frabil traps dont cost much on ebay. But if you can, just buy a frabil net thats about 6 feet long and net them in the thick stuff by shore. I've been doin it for ages. If you run out, just keep netting.

          Wal-Mart has a wire minnow trap (frabil) for $8-$9. Put wadded up bread or dog food in it and come back in the morning.
