collecting in fl

Hi,
does anybody know of a good tropical fish trap one that you can set at a dock or somthing and can access it out of the water looking to catch small butterflies and angels theres some around my dock but the water rarely gets clear enough to get in.
thanks!

Re: collecting in fl

I wonder if the good old minnow trap would work, have you tried that? You can widen the opening if you need to.

Re: collecting in fl

Another idea, try baiting it with a sheet of Nori seaweed from the Asian market.
