    Bait Species:............"Crayfish (except rusty crayfish)"

    Capt. Does this mean you can't take rusty crayfish for bait, or you can't USE them for bait? It seems the Rusty are invasive.
    And do the same rules apply for personal consumption? I believe that was the intent of the OP.
    Thank you.
    NOBODY EVER SHOT BAMBI....they shot his momma.
