Catfishing in your state; If you could have it your way, what would you change in the Catfishing Regs. in your state? In Missouri catfish are designated as sport fish and there are regulations for fishing them. (These are the very general regs., and there are some exceptions) Daily Limits: 10 channel cat, 5 blue cat, and 5 flathead cat. Fishing Methods: rod & reel, trotline, limb line, throw line, bank line and jug line (all free floating jugs must be under the owners immediate supervision). All devices must be labeled with the owners info, except 2 rods and reels. Number of Hooks: 33 hooks per fishermen, in any combination of the above methods. I feel these regulations are reasonable and have no problem with any of them. So tell us what you would change in your state.
