Be serious, Joe.
It is really a problem, Dan. I used to have marine. Heaven knows I tore down my reef just to catch my damsels.
You need two nets in order to catch them. One should be small to reach areas blocked by live rocks. The big one will serve as trap.
It's best to catch the fish when they are inactive. Do it first thing in the morning.
If not, baiting them with food on the net will work but the chances seem low.

Like blue states it' hard. The way he stated is a good idea but you will only have about 1 good chance at it as the fish will catch on. That is the only problam with marine systems. Good luck. :D

pretty simple actually

pretty much the same as this




put the food in the bottom wait till the fish dares to go in pull the string and the door closes on the exit easy! but make sure its the fish u want cos everyone tries to climb in it except the fish u want
