      I am a serious outdoorsman I love catching anything from bluegill to bass or croppie to catfish but I believe we should have some kind of limitations on our catfish because I've noticed over the past 3 or 4 years while still catching a few catfish here and there I've noticed I mainly catch 4" to 9" inch long cats usually weighing between 3 an 9lbs and then I think back too about 7 yrs ago when you could throw a line in and easily within 15mins you would have an exciting time fighting to reel in a decent size 1ft and sometimes up too 3 1/2ft long blue cat or mud cat weigh in anywhere from a few pounds up to my personal best of 68lbs. We should have limitations and or restrictions on our catfish so that hopefully our kids, grand kids, an so on may be able to walk in our steps and our parents steps and enjoy themselves as we did when we were young sitting on the Ohio river banks with our family catching monster cats enjoying ourselves just simply fishing and making memories with our loved ones.

      Something needs to be done to save some of our trophy catfish. A 20+ catfish is no where near as common now as it was 4 or 5 years ago because targeting the trophy fish has became so popular

      We need to set stricter rules on catfishing to save the eco system on the Ohio River. I would also like to see the next generation be able to catch trophy catfish on the river.....

      I can drive 30 minutes to the ohio river in Portsmouth or greenup and be lucky to catch a nice fish at all. As a matter of fact I've tried so hard I ruined several of my fishing partners including young ones. Now I have to drive to gallipolis to catch big fish. I have done extremely well there but nobody wants to go any more. Your waters are sad...wake up KY..

      I am a trophy catfisher as well and am tired of seeing all of the cats disappearing!
