what does it mean by fin fish?
That's just a regular fish, as opposed to, say, shellfish or crayfish.

I sure that would be a tasty treat, but I think I'll pass.
A quick glance at the GA law indicates that there may be a problem trapping "bait fish" in freshwater. Any opinions?

You can make them out of a single pop bottle, from 16oz on up. Cut the top off right where it starts to neck down from the largest diameter, and invert the resulting funnel into the cylindrical part. Attach with a needle and strong thread - you can sew right through the thin plastic real easily. You only need to secure it in 2-3 places, makes it easier to remove the minnows later. Punch some small holes in the bottom, tie a string on, and voila - almost free minnow trap. 20oz water bottles (the ones with the ridges) work especially well.
I've seen more elaborate versions in China (with bamboo rim that secures the funnel), but this is the simplest you can get. This is one heck of a lot easier than elaborately woven bamboo traps that were used to catch loaches historically, and seem to have replaced the bamboo traps in all but the most remote regions. The pics below are of a traditional bamboo trap being emptied, and of the end result... mmm good!
