I want them for my lake about 10 or so for they can take care of all the
bluegill cause they almost cover the whole top of the lake so bad u can
almost walk on them in some areas. I would much rather like to get flathead
catfish then gar though. I hope the new litter of catfish from the spawn
will help take care of it. By the way anyone know when the catfish spawn in
Indiana is over?
