NFC: keeping game fish in Indiana

As I understand Indiana law, you may keep game fish that are legally caught 
with hook and line and, are of legal size, in an aquarium.  Of course, you 
must have a proper fishing license.  Game fish caught by traps or nets must 
be released.   

I still question which are game fish and which are not.  A year ago, I 
cornered a DNR Enforcement Officer and he looked up data in a reference book. 
 According to him, Grass Pickerel are not considered to be a game fish, but 
another type of Pickerel is.  Eel are not considered to be game fish.
