I had written a earlier post about no snagging at chain of rocks and a lot of people were wondering why. As I have a rather inquisitive nature I called up horseshoe lake where they have a marine biologist and this is what he told me. He said it is to protect the pallin sturgeon. Well I did not know what that fish was and he said they are down there and they get up to one hundred pounds. Now I want to catch one.:smile2: Anyway he said they eat similar to a catfish and are in the heavy current. I did ask him about snagging at alton and he said it is still allowed.
