you know i have been thinking about posting this thread for quite some time but i kept putting it off but i have to get it out. now i may be wrong and if so, so be it but here it goes anyway. it seems to me that a few brothers here on the b.o.c. dont seem to understand why this website is here. yeah its about comraderie and a place to learn and share knowledge and all that but one of the main objectives of this site and others like it is to get catfish classified as game fish by raising awareness to the fact that there are alot of people out there that would like to see this take place , giving catfishermen a louder voice. now that being said, can you think of any gamefish that by law, are allowed to be harvested limitlessly(size and creel) gigged, speared, noodled,trapped or netted? i cant. you know why? BECAUSE IT'S ILLEGAL TO HAVE FREE REIGN ON GAMEFISH THAT'S WHY!!!!! okay, im better now. just had to get that off my chest. let the games begin.
