Lake shiners can not be transported over the Il.border. The state is worried about the VHS virus. So far, bait shops can only get them dead, if available.

Yes, I have frozen shiners. They're not as big as what everyone is used to, but they are a shiner.

I don't know if WI has shiners or not. My bait wholesaler would have to pay like a grand for the special permit to carry shinners, then , if they can get them, they have to keep them under quarnteen {sp} for 30 days before they MIGHT be able to sell them.
Even if they did have them, shiners can NOT be transported over the border by anyone.
