    They have stocked a huge amount of lakes in Arkansas lately. I love it that the AGFC posts when they stock and what lakes but then again when they do we have seen folks pile in on small ponds and take cooler of small cats out (More that they are supposed to) So Sometimes i wish they would be a bit more thin on what they tell folk. One of my favorite places to fish , got hit in just this way.....

    I agree with puppy. I think sometimes they need to keep it kinda quiet for a while and let the fish grow. I see this all the time. They stock it and then no cpr is practiced and it is fished out before you know it.

    How can you report those who clearly violate daily limits? This is a troubling issue fishing the city ponds with my kids. They leave with upwards to 25 catfish or the same amount of trout & the kids may get 1 or 2. How do you show your kids what fishing is about with this hapening? :angry:
