I sent the following to th Ohio DNR This is the reply I got: The proposed regulation for catfish has passed and will be implemented in 2010. Thank you for your support of this regulation, which is intended to protect our trophy catfish fishery. We will not be allowing exemptions for tournament anglers. Doing so would not be fair to non-tournament anglers and distinguishing tournament from non-tournament anglers would be difficult for our law enforcement officers by creating ambiguity between who is a tournament angler and who is not. These regulations should not detract from the growing popularity of catfish fishing and tournaments, but rather showcase how good catfish fishing is in Ohio and continue to protect populations that support this fishing. Thanks for asking, Scott Hale Am I right in thinking that the Ohio river between OH and KY is "owned" by Kentucky? If so can the ODNR enforce this on the Ohio River???
