Let's see if we can have a civic debate about the subject of pay lakes. They are there for the public to use and in most states they are legal. Does it benefit the trophy catfish or potential trophy cats? It is currently legal to transfer cats from a public source to be used for profit and a possible question is, should it be illegal to do so. Do trophy cats continue to grow after they are transferred to a small lake or pay lake? Do you know of any pay lakes that raise their own catfish? The forum is now open to those that want to discuss this issue.
