Default Bull minnows in Oct

Hello fellow fisherman. Just joined PFF! Been fishing PCOLA most of my life even though I'm from Ga. Have had a blast learning salt water fishing tactics, although as I've gotten older, I seem to like inshore fishing more these days. Anyway my family and I are taking our annual fishing, camping trip to Pt.St.JoePen.StatePk the 2nd week in Oct. and I need some help and advice. What size cast net is good for catching bull minnows and where can I go to catch them in the park or near the park, then? Also we have been able to catch some live shrimp there these past few years, would shrimp or bull minnows work better for flounder?

I catch most of my bull minnows in a trap and finger mullet in a cast net.

Thank you Cory. Do you catch the bull minnows in grassy areas around docks or what? Thanks

Bull minnows like the reeds from my experience. Doesn't matter on net size... the mesh size should be less than 1/4 inch probably. Dip net shrimp in grass flats with flashlights at night. Good luck

Yes, inlets and creeks are good too. I use a can of oily tuna in my trap as bait with a hole punched in with a church key.
