I want to know how many of you catfishermen out there practice catch and release and why? If we continue to keep what we catch - what are we going to be catfishing for in the future? How long does it take for a flathead to get 50 pounds and 40" long? I think we all need to do more CPR..Catch, Photo and Release...Seems to me that the catfish are getting much smaller in weight and decreasing in volume of catches. Am I missing something here???? I want my daughter to be able to catch a monster of a fish and feel proud to let it go.....just wondering and thinking of doing something about it!
