    Stopped at my local bait shop to pick up some herring and as is my usual custom i checked out the peg board were people tack up pictures of fish. I was amazed to see a picture of a 25 LB. channel cat some clown had caught. No name or place were it was caught just the weight. The guy holding the fish had run a section of nylon rope through the cats mouth and out of his gills, and it was obvious that the fish was dead. I asked the bait shop owner if he knew anything about the guy who had caught the channel cat. He said that he had been in a week ago bragging about how he had caught some kind of catfish and left it to die because it was just a trash fish as far as he was concerned. This is the kind of attitude people have up here about channel cat and it makes me furious. There are all kinds of programs in New York state to protect salmon, trout, Northern pike, walleye and bass, but when it comes to Channel cat the D.E.C. could care less. Its a good thing we have no blues or flatheads up here and its probably a good thing because the state would more than likely exterminate them to protect there precious trout and salmon waters. I have nothing against other species of fish there all important in my opinion, but i sure do have a problem with wasteful ignorant people. When i see someone throwing a fish up on the bank to die I'm not afraid to open my mouth and give them a lesson in conservation but ninety percent of the time they could care less!! I guess ill never understand the mentality of some people!!!!

    It sucks when ignorant people catch nice fish. Maybe someone will just leave him to suffer one day, alone in an old age home.

    Don't try to understand it or change it. However, make sure ya let them know that they are %#@%$#$%%! Its a disease that is plagueing the country. Not just with fishin but things in general. I can feel your pain.

    Steve: Disgusting is a proper word. Like gar, turtles, carp, unborn babies in the trash, this country has no brains anymore. You can't change them. I am personally glad I am getting to the end of my range. Perhaps, if there is another life commonsense rules. John

    Cause this post has made me ill! I don't understand the mentality of people. 25 pound cat just wasted that guy in my book is bad news. If he does this and brags about it what else does he do that is probably just as sick and disgusting that we don't know about! Does he shoot deer and leave them lie just to shoot them? Sick Sick Sick!!!!:angry:

    The he$$ with your boat as an escape route. You my man get the first Bradley tank to go over the plain. You stick your head out a turret and Dademoss will give you his penguin gun. The war has been won, you have to change your socks though. We don't want them committing Harri Kari.

    Because we have interfered with nature we now have a society where the stupid are protected from themselves. Once upon a time, way, way back in the day if you were stupid nature would make sure you were removed from the gene pool. Now, the stupid are not only protected and nurtured, they are allowed to procreate and brag about killing catfish. :confused2::angry::confused2::angry:...W

    Think there's a law against cruel and unusual punishment, Big George...lol But maybe that goes along with what metalman said about the stupid being protected...? Wait a second...this just registered. Is that statement the very reason I've been nurtured???:crazy:
