Here is their response..

"What your friend was told is not true. Being within the lake Erie watershed is being within the lake Erie watershed and with that being true, we will not stock a pond with hybrid striped bass due to the ODNR rules and regulations. If you have any further questions concerning this, please contact Kevin Kale with the ODNR, as he is the head of the law enforcement division of the ODNR and is well versed in the laws. Thanks and have a great day."

How far does the Lake Erie watershed go, wouldn't that technically make it illegal for most of the land south and east of Lake Erie all the way to the ocean, off limits? How about Pennsylvania, is that in the Lake Erie watershed?

I would have a conversation with Mr. Kevin Kale and respectfully ask him how they can make such a blanket statement as saying that any body of water that could connect with any other body of water that then ends up connecting into Lake Erie is not allowed to have HSB in it.

It's actually pretty specific. Just a portion of Northern Ohio, most of the rest of the state goes to the Ohio River.

Do you have a picture of one of these built?

Spawn device looks like a Hester-Dendy Multiplate sampler. Look it up on google.
