    if there are 2 people in the boat spider rigging they'll have 6 poles in the water.

    Why the heck have a structure build on Patoka when there are other lakes like the Cat. With no structure? Heck, Patoka has tons of trees and struture in it all over the lake. Sounds like a waste to me and they think that Patoka needs structure? I and other locals just watched DN R spend at least a quarter million dollars rebuilding a boat launch at Williams Dam using a hired contractor dig the parking lot out 2’ to 3’ deep, repack with white rock, then add a foot of layered asphalt and paint white parking lines on East Fork of the White River above the Dam, on Hwy 450, and nothing was wrong with the parking lot or launch other than ever time the river floods it 3-4 times a year it gets covered with silt and mud. Who the hell is going to clean all that new asphalt off next time it floods. And it took the contractor 2.5 months to complete. Darned River is full of Asian carp that has ruined the fishing. Stupid is stupid does!

    Most anglers never come close to catching a limit. A higher average number of poles in the water multiplies fishing pressure. 1 guy fishing two rods for 5 hrs is the same as 2 guys fishing 1 theoretically. So if everyone on the lake adds a rod thats a lot of added pressure and the average number of fish harvested goes up in kind. Most bag limits are essentially posession limits that serve to distribute the catch among more anglers on high pressured lakes. On most lakes they really don't do anything because in most lakes more crappies die at the hands of mother nature than due to fisherman.

    In lots of lakes the fish take too long to get that big so a 10 inch limit means piles of 8-9+ inch fish die before anyone gets a chance to harvest them. The DNR doesn't want limits on lakes where it won't improve the fishing.

    For what its worth there is no documented evidence that those limits in Illinois are doing anything. Most of the lakes they put that reg on were already producing numbers of big fish. I've fished carlyle, shelbyville, and rend for years. Those lakes have always produced big fish. I'll be a believer when I see some hard evidence that anything has changed.
