Everyone knows the historical story of the Last of the Mohican's. These were humans, with all the human intelligence, wiped out to the point the are no more. I fear the same will happen with the big catfish, which has no human intelligence, just a big belly. Just think of all the Sports fishermen with the hundreds of rods and reels in the waters every day. The trot lines, limb lines, throw lines, nets, traps, each taking a toll on the big fish. A few of us encourage CPR, and more than a few who ridicule us for this viewpoint. If you would stop to think, there is quite a few species which are now extinct thanks to the human race. No one, to my knowledge, will ever begrudge a person the right to harvest fish for their consumption. It is just that each of us needs to set a size limit and if a fish meets or exceed that limit, it needs to be released. Unca is probably crying.
