I dont know if this topic has been brought up in the new site or not....

What are everyones opinions on Catfish contests??

I recently attended the weigh-ins of two contests held in Minnesota. I saw a total of 9 fish over 30lbs brought in for weigh-in that were dead. With all the rules and regulations for these contests, it is quite hard to keep a big fish alive for a long period of time.

I think its a trajedy to see these people killing all these big fish. Some people just dont care whether or not the fish dies...and that sucks. :cursing:

I used to fish [email protected] tournaments for years. Caught lots of fish, had lots of fun, then finally figured out "Why am I competing fishing, what does it matter who catches the largest or biggest stringer" I just like to fish to relax and get away from stress. I have enough stress in life without making my relaxation stressful! Besides now I have to wonderful children to take fishing and enjoy spending time with! :)
