Here is a template petition that we wanted to pass around last year... Where and why does it need tweeking? as always THANKS in advance... We the Undersigned would like the state of Ohio to establish regulations protecting Catfish resources: 1) Set Slot/Bag limits on all catfish over 34 inches, limiting possession to 1 per day on all license types. 2) Regulate Pay Lake stocking, requiring them to be stocked under ODNR supervision, and requiring owners of Pay Lakes to have valid proof fish stocked were taken by legal means. 3) Work with the all states sharing Ohio Boundary waters to establish Regulations mirroring those established by the state of Tennessee: a) Commercially licenced fishermen required to immediately release all catfish caught over 34 inches. b) Restricting all sports fishing licenced fishermen to a bag limit of 1 fish per day on all Catfish over 34 inches.
