Exposing Paylakes acknowledges paylakes can be a valuable resource. We fully support paylakes that fundamentally stock farm-raised catfish. It is not our objective to shut down paylakes, but yet to - establish proper oversight & regulation. It should also be noted that Exposing Paylakes supports & applauds all forms of constructive recreational activities. With that said - we absolutely don't frown upon folks who fish ANY type of paylake. Though it is our intention to better inform anglers regarding the origin of these paylake fish, the reasons for numerous annual stockings and consequentially the overharvest & decline of "trophy" size - river catfish.
It's our belief most true sportsman will seek better options, assuming they understand more about these "trophy" paylakes.
Only stock farm-raised catfish?
