I am 55 years old and have been a fisherman since I was 6 years old. There is nothing like the thrill of feeling a fish on your line be it big or small. I guess everyone has the dream of catching that big one. I have caught big bass, catfish, and rough fish all my life and would haul them around and show my friends the big one that I had caught. Now that I am older and realize that these big ones are a rarity and take many years to reach this size I know that we as fisherman have to protect these trophys from becoming a thing of the past. You don't want to eat these older fish. You want the young tender ones. Take a picture and put them back. Some of these fish take 20 years to grow to trophy size. Arkansas needs to adopt the law that Tennessee has and restrict the size of catfish that you can keep especially commercial fishermen and their hoop nets.
