Bob, it sure appears that the two photos are close enough together that
someone was referring to protecting their locations from "collectors",
doesn't it? This position is freakin' ridiculous in a state like Ohio with
such liberal bait collecting laws. If, as Chris said, it was the editor and
not the author who inserted those captions, it was wrong to insert his
personal opinion or simple ignorance. Perhaps a letter to the editor is a
good idea. ODFW offices are in Columbus after all and their employess would
likely read it and share such a viewpoint with other employess. Who knows--
it may lead to a better understanding of the positive effects of
recreational collecting, and the fact that actually very, very, very few
people collect wild natives. I'll bet the number of fish taken for bait is
1,000 times greater than that taken for home aquaria.
