    Hey Erik. Welcome to the BOC and conrats on the PB. Those are some nice fish. You might want to double check with what your warden friend told you. In the 2009-2010 North Carolina regulations digest on page 28 there is two places that states "In Lake Norman and Badin Lake the daily creel limit for blue catfish greater than 32 inches in length is one". No disrespect intended but even game wardens can make mistakes.

    thanks baitnwait i saw that in the book and took it to him and showed him that he said he needs to go and talk to his boss cuz they need to let the other wardens know that most of them dont know that he said. sorry about the smart *ss reply to livebaiter it wont happen again!!!!!!! cuz i dont like having myself look like an *ss.
