In layman's terms (or better - in terms people like me can understand)

You may keep up to 6 individuals of each species as pets following these regulations. Fish may only be taken by methods used to catch live bait or by hand. Methods used to catch live bait are:

Baitfish, except for shad, may not be taken in the area within 100 yards below a dam. During daylight hours, baitfish may be taken using:

Seines no larger than 50 ft. long and 4 ft. wide with quarter-inch mesh;

Traps or lifts no larger than 6 ft. by 6 ft. by 3 ft. with half-inch mesh and with a throat size of 2 inches;

Cast nets with one-inch or smaller mesh;

Shad trawl nets with one-inch or smaller mesh;

Glass, plastic or wire mesh minnow traps no larger than one gallon with a one-and-a-half inch or smaller throat;

Hand-operated dip nets or lifts with one inch or smaller square bar mesh for use while sportfishing. This method may be used day or night. All other species of fish must be released immediately.

Game fish may only be taken by sportfishing methods. We do issue scientific collection permits which allows a collector to take more than 6 of each species, however these permits are issued for those who are conducting scientific research, biomonitoring / environmental assessment, museum collection etc.
