    Did anyone hear how the meeting went to restrict the length of a catfish that one can keep to 34" and only being able to keep one? I can't seem to find the post or remember the date of that meeting that took place.

    The rules for our state our harvest only (1) catfish over 34" per day. Any smaller and its your preference.:wink:

    I think there should be limits on the smallers ones, you need small ones to grow into trophys..

    It is good to see a state caring about catfish

    I agree, Jack. However, we have found little steps work quite well here in MO, while large changes that upset more folks, are like a brick wall.
