Lightbulb Potomac fishing

The rock fish are out with the trolling folks now so were doing this in between deer hunting.

Catch and release of fish into the 50's like this one. Tournaments are starting after New Years.

You don't eat those! Catch and release only.
Mud shad for bait.

You don't eat 56 lb catfish. That fish is over 12 years old and if it made it that long, it needs to go back in for breeding stock. I just fish for state of Virginia citations. Eating size is 4 lbs.

Nice fish, I do agree with releasing fish and we do more than our share of it but there are times when a fish should be put right next to the potatoes. Now if I felt that it was a rare fish of that size yes definately release it for stocking purposes. That probably is the case here. We are see the need to release more big fish in the Chesapeake bay because they give more eggs than the smaller counter parts. Just makes good sense.
I do know in some areas the "noodling" for catfish that big and get plenty of them. Infact some states have outlawed it.
