MISSISSIPPI HAND GRABBLING REGULATIONS

Grabbling for non-game gross fish only by hand or with rope (no attachments) is permitted annually from May 1 to July 15. The use of grappling tongs or any hook is illegal when handgrabbling. It is unlawful to alter any natural areas by placing boards, wire or any other obstruction to logs, holes, etc., or to take fish from such altered devices. It is also unlawful to raise any part of a natural or artificial device out of the water thereby aiding in the capture of enclosed fish. Only wooden containers may be used. It is unlawful to place structures such as plastic or metal barrels, hot water tanks, concrete pipe, tires, and other non-biodegradable materials in any public waters of the state. Any person grabbling for fish must have a valid sportfishing license. It shall be illegal to place any cavity-type structure, intended to be used for hand grabbing purposes, in all Mississippi water of the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway. Fish caught by grabbling cannot be sold unless the angler also has a commercial fishing license.

All game fish must be intact (with head, tail, skin and scales) while fishing areas with established MDWFP length limits. Conservation officers may seize any sportfishing gear determined to be unsafe or illegal.
