Catching an uncatchable fish

Posted 02/03/2014 at 12:19 AM by Whiterabbitrage

[QUOTE=Whiterabbitrage;22387077]Yes but what about firefish? They are hiding in rocks at night, not curious enough to go into a trap and eat food so small you can't bait it on a hook. So how do you catch them?[/QUOTE]

Catch dartfish with a XX- large plastic fish bag. Submerge it. Be sure the mouth of the bag is open as wide as possible. Leave it where the shy fish swims. The fish will get used to the bag and swim in.
