    What would be realy good is to have a list of these pay lakes so that decent operators dont suffer from the negative publicity.

    I do not condone taking fish from public waters at all.

    There are a few catfish pay lakes who do raise their own and have size limits so the fish stocked will grow (of course being fed powerbait pellets and such).

    I would just like to know where to take my kids on the rare occasion that I go to a pay lake.

    Jerry,
    The problem with getting such a list is you will never know where the fish in the pay lake actually came from. If legislation could be passed then it would make it easier to believe the pay lake owners that they raise there fish and they do not come from public water ways.


    Thanks
    David

    I have said it many times, I have over 40-paylakes within an hrs drive of my house...They all stock only trophy fish, and get them from out of state netters.
