Does anyone know if Utah has any laws about using frequency emitting devices in Utah waters that attract mayflies, zooplankton etc. that in turn attracts baitfish, and finally predatorial game fish? I can't find any info on this.

I wonder if this could be classified under chumming, where the definition under administrative rules R-657-13-2 states that chumming is "dislodging or depositing in the water any substance not attached to a hook, line, or trap to attract fish." if someone was after you anyways that is :wink:

Thats an interesting thought. I like the maggot idea.

On another note I just noticed Fishglyph has joined the moderator ranks (been out for a day or two) Congrats!

I've always wanted to put a bug zapper over a pond to attract fish. :mrgreen: Since there is no law prohibiting electronic attractors, go for it. It's kind of like a salt lick. It's not illegal, but is it ethical?

Back in Alabama, we used to hang 'possums and other critters unworthy of eating in tree limbs over bream ponds. For you Utahns, "bream" is the generic name for bluegills, shellcrackers (Redeared sunfish), and any other panfish. The rotting critters would rain maggots into the water and feed the bream and we always caught BIG bream under those carcasses. :)
Of course salt lick is ethical. Without it the cows will dehydrate in the summer. The salt lick makes them thirsty which also helps them eat, and next thing you know....no dehydrated cows.

So under that conceptual framework Fatbass, I think I may have to hit the lab and create a frequency emiiter. I can test it out by the piles of manure and see if the flies come to it. :wink:

Obtuse.
That word reminds me of Shawshank Redemption. I am bordering on being obtuse again so back to the subject at hand. What would you use to test this piece?

A bum.... as in a person. I"m sure if one of them held it long enough, they'd attract bugs. 8)

Offer them a stiff drink and I'd bet they'd be falling over (pun intended) to help you.

Haven't heard "sacalait" for awhile, brings back some good memories.
