    My brother has a Facebook page...team ditchpiggin, he catches a lot of big fish. We used to go to the red and channel fish north of Winnipeg, best catfishing hands down. All Iowa has is a master angler program. I wish they had a catch and release record, it would preserv the fish. In order to certify a state record in Iowa, you have to get ahold of a fisheries worker with a certified scale. I bet they aren't answering their phones and driving to look at fish at 9 pm on a Friday. Makes it impossible to not kill the fish to get a record. But this state never seems to amaze me. If it isnt about deer, they could care less

    Nice fish! Still looking to catch something that big just for the experience. We have a rule on my boat that anything over 25-pounds gets released. Honestly, I prefer to keep the smaller catfish anyway, especially those that can be deep fried whole (of course with the guts, head, tail, and skin removed). Thanks for sharing your pics:bow
