    as some of you are aware,the division of watercraft has plans in the works(with backing from some special interest groups),to lift hp and other restrictions from hoover,griggs and o'shaughnessy reservoirs.these lakes are owned by the city of columbus,which does not want this,and is fighting the move.i am involved in the movement to help columbus stop this mistake from happening,and your help is needed.
    the state claims that the move is needed to improve safety at alum creek,and give ALL users(jetskis,lager boats/motors)equal access to all waters.
    this will only serve to create more safety and environmental issues for three more lakes,along with added expenses for other things.
    we,as fishermen,are not being considered in this matter,and will lose the only 10 hp lake in central ohio(hoover)which is our only escape from the crowds of pleasure craft that frequent alum creek,creek,buckeye and other lakes that were built and are maintained for their use.
    this will be a tough fight against some big interests,so we need all the help we can muster,if we're to protect our own interests.
    the same kind of thing is being attempted in other parts of the state,so this really concerns all of us,so please take a minute to help preserve our waters for their intended purpose,and click on the below link,and type the word ADD in the subject field of the email.
    thanks in advance for your support. need to enter a message,just the "ADD" in subject field and send.

    Very easy to do people. Took me only 20 secs to do. Its taking me 10 times longer to write this post!!

    DO IT!!

    I have never fished or seen any of these reservoirs, live in the Akron area, but I am SO in support of 10 HP lakes!! It preserves the fishing ATMOSPHERE of a body of water.

    Best of luck Columbus area... It would be a shame to lose the 10 HP lake.
