    "Surprisingly, most fish over 90 pounds tend to be fairly young, relative to their size, whereas the older cats weighing only 8 pounds have been aged at 32," Buckmeier notes. "It appears that these really big fish are fast growers for some reason. Conditions in the reservoir contribute but growth can vary a lot, even in the same system. Perhaps there's a genetic link, but we don't know that. Splash's growth is not necessarily typical of Lake Texoma. Around the country, more researchers are stating to age blue catfish, so the database is growing." (Catfish In-sider 08 Guide) __________________ I have to give major credit to Stump Jumper for this great thread! You will find the whole thread in Missouri River talk, when i read his post, i was thinking, this is the best reason i ever found to practice catch and release. BIG FISH PRODUCE BIG FISH!!! PUT THEM BACK!

    I just read that in an In-Fisherman Catfish magazine. I was surprised by that info.

    I agree about putting the big fish back, but the little fish you catch may also just be a very young big fish, so I release them all.

    Makes sense to me, the same is true for all types of livestock. I need to read the article. Thanks for turning me on to it.

    It's pure common sense!

    If you take out all the Shaquille O'neals, Yao Mings, Shawn Bradleys, and Maute Bolls of fish, thee won't be any giants left on Earth.

    Plus thier genes are destroyed FOREVER!
