who keeps there catfish and eat them or who just releases them
I do some of both. I like to eat catfish, but I never keep more than I will use.
here comes the cpr guys watch out!! j/k---i only take what i know i'm gonna eat!!
I normally release them myself unless the wife says to bring some home. Also another question would be, what size should they be to become a keeper?
I release all the catfish that I catch.
I keep 4 to 12 pound blues and release everthing smaller or larger. I feed a lot of needy folks and some church folks plus my family and I love to eat them too. I don't catch flatheads but I have heard they are tasty so if I do catch some in my size range I will give them a try. We don't really care for the taste of channel cats much so they all get released little or big.
i release ALL of my fish...most of them to lake crisco:smile2:
That's funny Phil!
The river here is polluted so everything goes back even if we are hungry.
blues and channels over 6 or 7 lbs.goes back.flatheads over 5 and under 15 i eat.over 15 i turn loose.
I release all my fish, I'd never eat one out of the Ohio:crazy:
I release all the fish I catch regardless of size. Yes I practice CPR. I don't see anything wrong with keeping a few to eat. Five pound and under. But the big fish needs to be returned to our waters.:big_smile:
I do it on a fish by fish basis. Most of the big ones go back and all of the fish with roe go back during the spawn. If I aint going to clean and eat it, it goes back.
I eat most of what i catch. don't catch a lot or to many big ones.
I CPR 99% of the Cats I catch. However I do keep some Channels for the frying pan once in awhile. I'm usually to tired after a long night of fishing to deal with cleaning fish so I release them. I have no problem with anyone keeping fish for the table but I do like to see the big boys released!:big_smile:
I only keep channels under ten pounds and release everything else
i agea the biggest fish we have ever kept was the 27'' channel cat.
I may keep one or two of the 4lb cats that I pull in a month. Otherwise it's all catch and release.
I would never eat any fish from the allegheny. It's full of pcbs mercury and who knows what else. Local lakes on the other hand are great for an eater or 2. I try to keep them to a minimum though. preserving the population and what not.
I release all the cats I catch in the rivers
I fish the MON....enough said!
