    In Pa we have a 50 fish daily limit with no size restrictions. So more or less we have no regulations! :crazy:

    Kentucky has a few, depending on what method of fishing you use. Also some lakes have size and catch limits on channel catfish.

    Ky has regulations on some waters but they differ . Some small central Ky lakes have a 12 in min. size limit and I beleive some have 3 fish daily creel limit you might go to kdfwr and see what you can find if that doesn't help let me know .

    WV has a few

    Bluecats 2 daily creel no possesion limit and a 24 inch minimum size limit.

    Channel Cats 4 daily creel possesion 16 in state managed impoundments

    Does not apply to Mt. Storm,
    Stonecoal, Cheat, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lakes​
    and all rivers and streams.

    So basicly if you go to almost any lake or river there are no limits :confused2: on channels

    Flatheads have no size or possesion Limits and arnt even listed on the page because WV has a uncanny ability to overlook the best parts of our great state until they have been destroyed.

    Like AwShucks said regs on fisherman. We got more on us than the fish. LOL.:crazy:

    massa_jorge bout covered it all for Texas.:wink:

    We aint really got a shortage of catfish in Texas. maybe a shortage of old school fisherman/woman.That is due to cost. LOL. The main thing is not being able to eat more than 4 - 8 oz a month from many of our lakes and rivers. That is why I dont fish many other lakes and rivers. I like to bring home dinner now and then to offset cost. Still a couple places left that has no warnings on eating fish. Seems like to me, the cleaner the water, the better the fishing for eaters and trophies.
    Catching and eating is part of it for me.
    I tried to eat deer horns once. Never really understood how a dog can get full from a horn or bone. LMAO:smile2:
