    I must have been busy posting on the BOC at that time, I missed it :sad2:
    I try to watch a lot of fishing shows but I can't see them all.

    They were reeling in some monster Walleyes & White Fish (ice fishing) when one of the guys brought up a 8lb Channel talking about how ugly catfish are and how they didn't like touching them. They just don't know a good fish when they see one.

    Channel cats are pretty, but flatheads are beautiful!

    There's alot of ignorance when it comes to fish by fishermen. Basically, if you don't fish for it, and don't know alot about it, it's considered an ugly "trash" fish. I say to each their own. I commend those other fishermen for their catch and release, so my big catfish can have something to eat.
