A few weeks ago I sent an email to the IDNR about the use of alot of illegal gillnets in this stretch of river. They thanked me for informing me of them, and sent my email to appropriate dept. The second reply is very good news, it seems they arent treating catfish as a rough fish like some other states do. And they also sent some good information about catfishing studies in the wabash and white rivers. Let me know what you guys think. Sounds like we need to all get together and let this Ohio River Fish Management Team know there are probably more catfish anglers than they think. I am going to send a reply back, maybe inviting him and the Ohio River Fish Management Team to the BOC to show how much support there is for better conservation of trophy catfish.
