i was reading a post in the VA section about what size cats people keep and where the line is for throwing the fish back. It inspired me to see where people across the country are setting the limits on when to practice Catch, Photograph, Release (CPR). What is the largest fish that you'll keep? Me personally, i tend not to keep any of the catfish i catch unless i know im going to eat it w/ in the next few hrs or days. and even then i only keep fish between 1 and 3 lbs. Anything over 10 gets put back as soon as i get the picture. If it is a record i usually have a bucket id use to get it to a larger container to be taken to the weigh station.
