NANFA-- Ohio & Ky Fishing Regs.-need help deciphering!

I've read the Ohio Fishing Regs. over & over but can't seem to figure out
the rules for collecting game & non-game species. What are the sizes/limits
for each? Is collecting the same as catching for eating etc? What types of
collecting methods are legal/illegal? Are any of these laws seasonal? Do the
rules vary from county to county w/n Ohio?

What about private ponds/creeks (of relatives w/ permission)?

Can a classroom in OH have a native tank with game species over/under
size/number restrictions collected in Ohio? What about outside of OH-IN, KY,
MI? What about a home native aquarium-collected in or out of state?

Who/what department(s) do I contact?

The same questions for Ky.

What is considered a "body of water" in OH-a native aquarium?

I'm soooo confused!!! The ODNR website does not help much either-ky is a
bit more helpful.

Any help appreciated!

P.S. Yes-I have a fishing license for OH, IN,& KY. My folks have residences
in each state with ponds & creeks on the properties!
