Check out the topic in the catfish forum titled BAIT, it will give you all the details. If you have any questions after that feel free to ask. We still have to get together and catch some.

The limit is 6/ fisherman/ day on anything under 700 acres. The largest reservoir here in Lima is 610 acres.

Cats,

I'm new to this site, so I'm reluctant to make my first post a critical one but,,, I think you may have misinterpreted the regulations. The regulations say you can have no more than six (6) setlines, trotlines, etc. on a body less than 700 acres. No where does it state a limit for cats on any body of water, taken by line, rod and reel. Feel free to take as many as you like or feel appropriate.

Cats have been liking my nightcrawlers on the windword side of res. 5, Fostoria. Few Saugers no size, no perch yet.

Country Cat is correct. In the regulations under site-specific regulations it states " Public Waters under 700 acres the limit is 6 channel cats no size limit........... CATKING

Personally, I would like to see a total catch and release fishery on all cats, on all waters....Make it illegal to keep a catfish, any catfish, any where...LOL

Bout time the DNR starts some sort of creel limit on them. The res here in town used to be good......but guys would take 200lbs of channels out right before the spawn each night. Needless to day, it's worthless now.

I believe when the ODNR starts putting limits on a species of fish for the first time,they are more or less telling us all something we already knew. TROUBLE is brewing in the heartland. In small lakes if everybody kept their catches, that lake could be in big trouble. I think the ODNR knows this now, just took them awhile......... CATKING
