    a very important subject was brought to my attention in a thread by big vic called mayb time for a change. in my opinion that the length limits and size limits here in kansas are basically taking alot of big fish out of our waters:sad2: i think that we should propose a change to the laws here from having just the minimum length limit to also having a maximum length limit to preserve our Big flatheads,blues and channels but not just them but also all the other species of fish that people target alot such as crappie,walleye,bass,wiper and stripers it would put bigger fish in our waters but it could also lead the fish to start growing bigger faster giving us a better fishery and giving our children and grandchildren a chance at a trophy like we've all had :cool2:

    A max limit will never work. A slot limit is the way to go. :wink:

    Max length limit or slot limit, neither will work if it is not inforced. Not sure of the situation in Kansas but here in Nebraska we dont have enough game wardens to cover the area

    Joe, your statement with the list of fish posted for control on size kept is good, with one exception, Wipers. They're a hybrid, don't reproduce(possibly on occasion) live 3-5 years, if that long. So if you don't keep the bigger ones, they'll just die any way.

    its really up to those fishing on what happens with the fish.more laws will never be inforced not enough wardens to do that now.its the people you need to get across to not the law
