Can frozen herring be used as cut bait or like a minnow? Can white fish be used as cut bait or like a minnow?

Question:

Thanks in advance for your information and answers.

Answer:

You can use frozen, thawed, or shreded and bagged herring for bait in Idaho - in waters where bait fishing is allowed.  Whitefish are a game fish, so using the edible portion for bait could be construed by some as "waste of a game fish."  It is certainly legal to use the entrails, head, and tail area as cut bait.
