    Part of it depends on the body of water you are fishin. I think that 10 lbs is a good number to start releasing though. I throw most of mine back. Its not that I dont like eatin them its just that I hate cleanin them.:smile2: The rule in my family has always been, you catch it,you clean it. :wink:

    I CPR everything over 5 lbs. A 5 lb. channel is a pretty healthy fish, and it can easily be 8 lbs. the next season. 2 and 3 lbers. are the best eaters in my opinion anyway. :big_smile:

    I only eat crappie bluegill and walleye. I don't begrudge a guy keeping a couple of eaters. Don't kill the big ones takes 'em too long to get big. My moron uncle however always wants to keep the bigger ones much to my dismay. I only keep them when someone with me wants some. Every knucklehead I see keeps all the bigger ones even in a small lake.

    Well here comes the nasty PM's to me again but i CPR all my cats!!:big_smile: I don't eat them, but I think the magic number is 10lbs. I think it has to do witht he fish size in the body of water also. Thanks for CPR efforts every little bit help since I counted almost 400 jugs the other night on Badin.:angry:

    Mark, the impression you left me with, your biggest challenge was to CATCH a Catfish, then you can start thinking about eating one:smile2::smile2::smile2:
