Does anyone's state out there consider any type of catfish a game fish? It would seem states would recognize catfish as a game fish since everything I read states that catfishing is 3rd in game and wildlife revenues behind panfish and bass. You know, afford the catfish species some protection with limits and/or size restrictions like other game fish receive. I was glad to see South Carolina step up and offer some protection to catfish and would like to see more states follow other states like SC and TN. Just a spring board - let me know if your state classifies catfish as game fish and what you think about the matter.
