    Well, after talking to Garry ( Retired To Fish) debating the present issues that have been popular topics on the the board concerning CPR of trophy fish, laws, and other issues, we decided it was a good idea to try to contact an officer to attend the gathering so we can talk, and express our concerns towards the sport! Garry made some calls, and just called me to confirm we have an individual that has committed to attend the breakfast August 22nd at the Golden Corral in Zanesville. This will be your chance to express your views, opinions, etc. about what you see on the water, so he can take the measures needed to hopefully bring some change! I welcome him, and look forward to hearing what he has to say on some things. I ask you to please make a post if you plan on attending in the other thread. I need a head count to tell the restaurant in another week... thanks...rollo

    I think this is a great idea Jason, great work man, and reps for trying to maintain and save our sport. I think it would be great if members from all around Ohio could come to show our numbers and the concern for the sport and the problems that exist is all parts of the state. I myself will try to come but I must be back to school on the 23rd, so the 22nd is pushing it. :cool2:

    I would like to add to Jason's information: The Officer that will be attending the breakfast isn't a county assigned officer that you usually come in contact with. He is strictly law enforcement and is assigned to District 4 wildlife district.

    I would encourage as many as possible to attend the breakfast to hear what this officer has to say. I have ask him to give a short review of the laws regarding our sport and then to answer questions.

    I would suggest if you have specific questions or information that you write them down, so if need be, he can take the info with him. I am sure everyone will be poilite and curteous, and I am sure that he will be able to shed some light on certain situations we are all concerned with.

    I will see you all at the breakfast. ..... Garry-

    If you cannot make it then put your questions in this thread or forward them to someone that is going that way we can get as many questions as possible. Also if you are going and you are going to fish then dont forget your license:wink: I would hate to see anyone busted by the very guy we are having at breakfast:smile2:

    Wish I could make it up there guys, good job on getting this guy to attend. Hopefully something will come of this. There also a catfish syposium in St.Louis, MO in June of 2010, alot of scientist, bioligist, DNR from all over the world and the nation discussing conservation for our catfish. You can search it on you tube to find out about it, Bill Dance I believe is heading it up...

    Hopefully something positive will come from this. This isn't this mans fault first of all, so preaching and yelling ain't whats needed. He will speak, and hopefully take what info. and advise we have to hopefully get some other heads turned towards the sport. It has to start somewhere, so it may as well be now... rollo
