    :wink:Go to www.dnr.state.oh.us and you can take a survey on inland lake and reservoir fishing regulations. You can let them know your favorite fish to fish for catfish. But you will have to write in flathead catfish if you want to let them know your favorite type of cat. And a chance to tell them , what you would like to see changed in regs. A great chance to voice your views on catfish. :wink:

    I just took the survey Don.I might add on the survey on the last question I let them know I feel rod and reel fisherman in ohio should be allowed 3 rods just like the hoosier state has.

    That is a good idea about 3 rod limit ... this is also a good place to let them know about wanting Blues stocked in whatever body of water you want .... This is all about inland bodies of water ... so don't know if you want the Ohio stocked would make any difference. ...... Garry-

    Just took the survey myself and added in the comments section the opportunity of charging extra money for each rod and reel over 2 up to a maximum of 4-6. I feel this would benefit all of us. Because it would permit us to fish with more than 2 and help bring in needed resources to the DNR.

    i already took the survey and stated i believed that ohio should join w.v. and stock blue cats in the ohio river and ohio lakes....i also stated that i believed there should be a law about taking them from the water they are stocked in for atleast the first five years to help sustain a healthy size and breeding perposes of the blue cat....

    I just finished the survey, I added that I feel that catfish as a whole need to be treated more like a trophy fish and have stronger regs reguarding size and creel limits. Also said I would like to see Blue cats stocked in ohio lakes as I see them as a potental trophy class fish for ohio anglers to pursue.
