just wanted to say to some people who think the catfish doesn't get much recognition. If we all continue to fish hard and bring those record breaking cats to the scales it will bring alot of attention. Just since this new state record blue was caught I have seen alot of people become more interested in catfishing. Right now if you were to go to the odnr website the bluecatfish is considered the fish of the month. That is a lot better than say 10-15 years ago when I was fishing the clubs with Dale Broaghton (sorry if it is misspelled last name Dale) and we tried to report a 46 lb blue we had caught from the river to the division of wildlife, they said that Ohio did not even recognize the bluecat as astate fish, that we had to go to kentucky for a fish like that. So lets keep bringing them in. loluck.
