I'm not trying to "stir the pot" just wandering if anybody had any thoughts on making cats (of all species) a sportfish and have size and creel limits set, as well as methods of harvesting. We fished lock and dam #2 this past weekend. From what we could tell somebody had caught (about 15lbs.) a blue cat. It appears they tryed to fillet it. Everything they cut off the fish (fillets) was lying in the water. From what we could tell the fish was destryoed for no reason. This is not the first time I have seen these fish destroyed for no reason. STRICKLY MY OPINION: The fish was destoryed for no reason and I would like to see the catfish protected.
