    Went back and looked again and you are right, it was in a different spot. I was looking for something else and that change in where it was located in the rules was different from last years and highlighted saying effective July 1, 2009.

    I think the same rule should be in effect for larger lakes, and all rivers as well.

    i don't think i would want to keep any fish to eat out of a river anymore,less i wanted a slow and painful death,lol

    i really don't think the channel cat population is really hurt in bigger lakes to justify,and they do have a one day limit for them for 35 in or larger.

    i could see a stricter limit on flats though,and also i would like to see the size limit restricted even more.

    They need to do it like in the south where you are only to harvest 1 catfish over a certain length!
