    I think the have a special number just for that also, there's instructions and everything about what to do with the fish that you want to have them pick up and all. If I ever have that chance I think I might just give them a call.

    congrats on the catch... then subtract the congrats for keeping it. like it was said, a real fisherman would have known to keep it alive and got the cash money from BPS and If it ends up dying there, then it was just her time, and THEN its ok to eat i guesss.. but to catch a STATE RECORD FISH which is bigger than you and just let it Die and eat it. WOW...wowowowowowowowo WOW

    If it were me..
    my wallet would be fat, Id be eating lobster, crablegs and prime rib. The fish would be inside a tank being fed and doing things a TROPHY catfish does.


    You Have a right to keep fish.... you also have the right to do other weird things, im content with being a knowledged fisherman..

    The fact with the fish being a state record could have been used as as a really good negotiating tool with BPS. I wonder what is the going rate for something like that? Hopefully enough to get a new car or a boat even.:laugh:

    Though I might do the same as you, and though I definitely would not have killed that fish if I caught it myself, it's unfair to say what is and isn't a "real" fisherman. It's easy to say that on a board where 50 percent of the other members probably agree with you, but "IRL" things are not so clear-cut.

    I personally give the guy props for catching that big cat. It saddens me a little to see it die, but hey it's an old fish.

    1 The point of fishing for me is to have a great time
    2 The point of fishing is to get the biggest one EVER
    3 The point of fishing, who cares, number one and two were met.

    GREAT JOB on the bigest fish ever in California.

    I do not know what Id do with a fish that big.

    I dont know if Id let it go or eat it or release it or mount it. I have yet to be in that position.

    Some people like catfish, some dont. I do. I like catching them. I release 99% of all fish I catch, but I do like to eat a catfish once a year or so. Same with a halibut or a salmon or tuna. Im in the group also that would never eat a bass, unless my life depended on it, and if my life depended on it, I guess Im in dire straights and would rather just die.

    San Diego is known worldwide for its heavyweight largemouth bass, but it was a giant blue catfish that set a record Thursday at San Vicente.

    Steve Oudomsouk, 58, of San Diego landed a 113.4-pound blue catfish while fishing off Quaide Point at the reservoir. The catch shattered the state record for blue catfish, a 101-pounder caught and released at San Vicente by Roger Rohrbouck in 2000.

    Oudomsouk's son, Saki, translating for his Laotian father, said yesterday the catch was made with 15-pound Berkley Trilene line on a Shimano Triton reel. He said his father fought the giant blue for 20 minutes before boating it.

    Why must this dead horse always be beaten when someone catches and keeps a big fish?!?! It's tired. He kept the fish, who cares?!

    Great job catching a monster fish. He kept it, fine. If it was you and you would release it, more power to you. Now let it be.

    Ha you would think so huh? But I caught a big blue or 2 on 14 pound test and it put up a hell of a fight. It can be done the only thing for me is this, looking at the first pic i see grass on the fishes back i just want to know how you pull a 113 pound catfish out of grass? Did it take a while and he ran out towards open water? For me on 14 I happened to be lucky and have the fish run towards open water initially. Just anxious to see all the details.

    Suppose to close mid aug depending on if waters below lauch ramp. 7 other blues was caught there as well some maybe even been trophies I will be out there next week. Dropping water levels make them easier to find.

    Ya how can I call a guy who out crappie fished me for the 20 minutes i spent at the dock a fake fisherman. Plus I seen them catch a bunch of other big panfish and some cats. They are real fishermen with a view that differs from some.

    Here's the detail I got. Papa Laos was actually using 15lb Berkley Big Game on a 6'6" Kencor rated 10-20lb fiberglass rod with a Shimano Bait Runner reel. Setup was a standard c-rig and 2 little pieces of mackeral. He fought the fish from shore for about 20 minutes and was thinking that the fish was more like 20-30lb class fish(since that's usually how long it took him to land other cats in the same size). After landing the beast they simply put the fish in the boat and continued fishing, they had no clue that it was a special fish. Had he known that the fish was going to attract this much attention he would have done things differently and would've done everything to keep the fish alive. What's done is done, so "let's just congratulate and not playa hate" <--- hehehe

    That's as much detail I got so let's all move on to bigger and better things. :laugh:

    hahah the status quo gets better and better... very bleak i say very bleak. so now you dont look at a fish to determin its weight you time how long it takes you to reel it in and then WALA!! you should have your weight... classic. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
