"As you read this, dumpsters are being filled with tons of Indiana and Kentucky Catfish from the Ohio river. Wittness say "Big holes must be excavated with backhoes and are being filled with tons of these dead and dying catfish to dispose of them all." "The stench is unbearable"
"There are some of the biggest Catfish I have ever seen in my life! It's such a terrible waste." said one witness.
While tons of Catfish are lost every day, resent studies conducted by Indiana Fishery Biologist indicated that Big "trophy size catfish are rare." nevertheless, Indiana Division of Fish and Wildlife refuse to take action without cooperation from Illinois and Kentucky and "until more research can be completed" Only catfish are affected- mostly the larger ones, so no emergency actions are being considered....
I happen to have picture that a buddy just emailed to me showing tons of dead, rotting blue catfish, I need to resize them- then I'll post them. when I get a chance
