    As long as it's a river system where flatheads are invasive, I have no problem with it.

    That is really upsetting to see. but if it is legal than hey! more power to them. but i do really hope they are eating them as well tho and not just shooting them for the sport of it

    hey don't get me wrong, if it's legal it's legal. but like i said before, being a die hard catfisherman, catch and release always with flathead, it still kinda gets to ya

    Its for people that cant catch them on rod and reel:smile2::smile2::smile2: They need to have more intense rules for that. Ive seen remains down here in several boat ramps where the fish been shot and just thrown out the boat at the end of the night. Thats why we need to all get together and make catfish a game fish:big_smile: Our catfish will take a impact from this I think over time becuse certain times of the year I see catfish everywhere in the shallows then I hear the noise and the bright lights coming and I have had some come just about within casting distance from me:wink:

    Catfish aren't a gamefish here, but there is a limit on how many can be taken with a bow. The limit set for bowfishing is 5 catfish.
