I know I saw this on the web simewhere, but can't seem to find it this
evening, so I think I will ask here as I remember a few list members from
Ohio. What are the state laws/rules/regulations on collecting fish?

I know in some states collecting "bait" is OK, but gamefish is not OK.

Some states require just a fishing lisence.

What does Ohio require to seine a few fish out of a local stream/pond?
