    The OP said he can't use nets in his current locale.

    Ha, well that explains that one...

    How about a bucket, with a small hole on the bottom to allow for drainage?

    How about a lasso?
     
  4. Use either circle hooks or barbless hooks. They still earn a hole in their lip, but the former hooks them easily with a great survival rate for catch/release, and the latter comes out easily (but is unforgiving if you let up slack...they can easily spit the hook).

    If the hook doesn't come out easily, just snip off the line at the hook. They will have jewelry for a while but it will rust out.

    With a net? :eyebrow:

    A spear, stick, bow and arrow, harpoon, tarp, trap...;)
