    I was checking the different fish, and I was surprised to see how many were protected and endangered species?

    Good information but very confusing. With so many catfish, now I don't know what kind I've caught.:crazy:

    I had no idea there were that many different species. Thanks for sharing. According to those pics, I'd have released 80% of those fish thinking they were diseased. Prolly still will too, better safe than sorry.

    I don't think I've ever caught a channel cat as ugly as the one they have pictured, but I guess they all taste about the same. :eek:oooh:
