If you want to catch a bucket full from my experiance the fastest and most efective way is with a minnow seine net. tie a stick to both ends. I use to cath them by the bucket full in a very short time back in the day. Its easiest with two peaple but can be done solo.I have tried it with very limited success. I actually think I'm doing too long of a soak as they will get out when the bait runs out.
