After reading some of the threads about whether monster catfish still exist or not, I got to wondering what the state records are for the different states and if the records show any trends in fish size. Anyway I spent a day doing some reseach and put together state record lists for blues, flats, and channels. I've currently got the lists in an MS Excel file but can't get them to copy and paste into a message correctly. When I paste them into the editer they are formatted nice but when I go to preview the post the formatting is gone. I've also been able to save them into and HTML file if that helps. I can't even post them as attachments since XLS and HTM aren't allowed extensions for attachments. Anyone got any suggestions? Oh they do show some interesting info, 20% of the record channel catfish have been caught in the last 5 years, 28% of the record flatheads have been caught in the last 5 years, and 30% of the record blue cats have been caught in the last 5 years. It looks like catfish records are being broken pretty much every year somewhere.
