I was wondering if anyone could tell me the impact hoopnets have on the IL river. I know of one guy that sells fish to all the fine eating places around here. I hear tell that he sells 200 lbs of catfish fillets to one place alone.I wish there was something that could be done to stop this. If it was to stop, the IL river would be much better fishery. I have no problem with buffalo, carp and bighead carp, but the over harvest of catfish sould be stoped. During the spawn, one hoopnet can easily produce 1000 lbs of catfish. To me this can not go on!! What do you think?
