Ive read a bunch of the threads on here and it seems that most of you turn back the big kitties and i was wondering why? Is it because they have lived their lives and made it too big ones or what. My granddaddy caught a 63 pound flathead and we had a family fish fry on that one fish and it was good eatin. just wondering. I dont want to rough up no feathers cause we did. but granddaddy was raised when you ate what you caught or killed. And thats what he put in my head.
