Tyler Dobbs started this petition to Indiana DNR, fish and wild life

 

We as a fishing community would like for our lakes in Indiana to be stocked with blue catfish and flathead catfish. That being said, many states hosts big cat fishing tournaments and this brings in people from all over the United States to stay in hotels, eat at restaurants, shop, and many more things. This means that the towns/community is profiting money off people. We as fisherman pay taxes, buy licenses to fish and pay for DNR permits and launch fees to launch our boats. We should have a say so in what species of fish we would like to have stocked in our lakes. If we all can come together as a Catfishing community and sign this petition so hopefully we can all stand together and get something done. This would be a great thing to happen so people who aren't fortunate enough to be able to drive 2+ hours away to fish a big river system that has been completely slaughtered by commercial fisherman that is taking the trophy catfish out of their original habitat and sell them to pay lakes. We all know the fish that is being taken away out of their original habitat and put in small ponds don't live very long. So please, let's all pull together and get something done for not only us as fishermen, but our future fishermen such as our kids and our grandchildren. Our final goal with this petition is to get most, if not all of our lakes stocked with fingerling blue and flathead catfish so we have the opportunity to cat that once in a lifetime trophy catfish.
