    Good Question!!! If i had a way to keep it alive so i could get it verified by the state, and then release it un harmmed id do it. To be realistic, when i go fishing i dont prepare for the possibility of catching a record breaking fish. I would not, and could not, let a fish die so that i could enter it as a record breaking fish!! I love the sport of catfishing to much, i couldnt live with myself if i did. I would however take dozens of pictures to remind myself of a very special fish that was allowed to live another day.:smile2:

    If it was in a secret/favorite fishing hole no other fisherman would know I caught it.:big_smile:

    On the other hand, I'm not sure what I would do.:tounge_out:

    I would take many pics and let it go. Im n ot out for that big state record. If I catch a big fish thats cool, but I just want decent size fish that I can eat.
