I got every one of you beat. I have never even caught a Flathead for fear of hurting it.

I release 'em all. The only thing the wife lets near my house that resembles a fish is PICTURES!!
Sometimes...violence is the ONLY answer.

I never keep anything, I will keep channels, but Flats I always let go....
This is a good question though... and makes me think, I got sucked into that show Mudcats yesterday watching these guys Noodle and multiple times these guys had 45+ lbers die waiting a day or so to get to a weigh in that was no where close to the lake or river they were caught in.... Kind of disgusted me.... one guy lost what had to be at least 55 lber..
longest I have ever kept one is until the following morning and that was ONLY to take pictures....
