Being an advid catfisherman from the U.S. for a while now, I love the species.
My biggest yet was a 58 lbs blue cat in the James river.
All of mine have been released back to wear they came with no harm done.
Thanks for an awesome website!
Perhaps I am missing something, but I fail to see the point of killing these creatures. The large specimens must be very old and part of the spawning stock. It is distressing to see the pleasure in the faces of those responsible for this gratuitous destruction.
