    I very seldom EVER keep anything under 10” as you must not be seeing the pics I post. Fish West Boggs, Cataract, Raccoon, Lemon, but also, you won’t catch limits but still fish over 10” at Monroe and Patoka as both are on a really good comeback. Jig vertical, or long line jigs, or troll crankbaits. As my freezer fills up, so goes my size limit of releasing everything under 11”.

    Lemon and Boggs are pretty much pay lakes with the launch fees in my book My question was why they ended with 3 poles instead of 4 with the limits

    So let's go back to the age old question why dont we just go to a 10" size limit. Just my two cents.

    I would like to see some lakes in Indiana go to rules like Illinois has. If the total days catch limits is 25 per person, only keep 10 over say 10 or 11 or 12” and 15 under the size established being used on Patoka and Monroe to cull the millions of small crappies out of the lakes and stabilize the species. At least have DNR try something for a period of time to see if it improves the size of fish on the lakes. Then other lakes where the fishing pressure is heavy, go with a 10” size limit.

    Sad to say, it will never happen. To much work on DNR’s part to put anything together to make it work, heaven forbid. . And they probably wouldn’t want to have more workload on their law enforcement division heaven forbid. They might have to hire a few more people heaven forbid. And lastly, DRN’s usable favorite excuse is Indiana’s growing season on crappie is too short doesn’t warrant they try anything. However, what our neighbor Illinois has been doing shows our DNR that what Illinois IS doing does worki

    I pretty much agree with Cevans, 3 poles are plenty.It would be a nightmare on some of our lakes if guys were using 6-7 poles in every boat.
