nice golden shiner.  how'd you catch it? what bait or lure did you use?  been trying to set myself up for a micro fishing rig and I was curious to see what others have been doing.

They are super easy. I caught mine on a tanago and a peice of gulp maggot. Most people use panfish sized hooks and night crawlers under floats.

They're easy to hook when you can find them in a targetable environment....I'm having a heck of a time tracking them down for my lifelist and the June contest, though! Going on 2 years chasing leads and getting nothing.
