    I found this info and I thought I would pass it along to everyone.

    Figure 2.1 on page 10 of The Ohio Pond Management Handbook gives a growth rate chart for channel cats, bass, and bluegill. Here is the link: http://www.dnr.ohio.gov/wildlife/PDF/pondmgt.pdf

    Thats good general info and if you do a search a while back on catfish growth records, Ill see if I can find the post I made, I got data from Ohio DNR showing growth rates greatly varied on 4 different SE Ohio State Lakes. Let me see if I can locate it,

    Do a search for:
    Indiana flathead size,age study done
    and look at post #13
    I have this study and the results were quite interesting but the post captures the highlights.
