    Okay guys & gals. The article is almost prepared with facts & figures, etc to go out to all the fishing magazines, legislators, DNR's, etc. It's going to get lots of attention focusing on how paylakes aquire wild fish netted from the Ohio River. It won't end commercial fishing, or paylakes, just intelligent harvest and regulations for an unregulated industry. Hopefully limit the numbers of wild fish removed & the numbers stocked into pay ponds to a level where the fish will remain healthy.
    What I've been asked to do is to gather all the local Ohio fishing magazines, he's getting all the national ones. On "C" Day ( I just made that up :rolleyes: ..Catfish Day) We're going to email everyone at once.
    So here's what we need to do, everyone to pull together and post these links to Ohio Magazines & online sports either in here, or PM me with them.
    Links like those articles we see linked to from Cleveland or somewhere, Ohio Fish & Game, anything to do with Ohio (and KY for that matter) fishing. Thanks, I know we can count on you. Jim :)

    Thanks Jack, that's the kinds of things we're looking for. also here's something I just posted to someone, hope this explains it better.

    Links to anything that would be interested in having the news put on there. I've seen some sportsman articles posted in GFO and other sites sometimes from various sportswriters, and newspapers. Those kinds of things, so when it kicks in, we can send all of them info. Jim

  6. I bought an In-fisherman Catfish issue and I guess Tennessee has severely limited the numbers of big cats than can be pulled from the waters of the state. In the article they said that an Ohio netter was pissed because he can't sell fish to pay lakes now. Shame huh.
