Haha catfish are tough as nails, it would take a lot more than a missing spine and a tag in its fin to kill one. I bet it doesn't phase them

Whats with this Halocubber? Seems like he can only post with words starting with F. I reviewed other posts and they are professional. Where did this guy come from?

People watch a tv show or two and think they know everything about fish! Right on nice video thanks for tagging and releasing for fisherman like me to enjoy another day!!

Dtrofishon don't listen to the ignorant people who act like they're all knowing about fish. The fish crest slime and catfish are incredibly resistant to bacteria and infection which the water they live in is full of! Removing the barb does not in anyway alter the fishes life, I've seen catfish with chunks taken out of them and survived!

First of all, it's not a catch and release fishery for catfish, secondly the MNDNR does not allow anglers to tag fish, and lastly the data collected will be invaluable in setting future bag and slot limits for catfish. Maybe we should quit using hooks when we fish too huh?

You guys are funny, Joel is with the MNDNR and has tagged over 1000 cats this way over the past few years. A lot of them have been recaught several times already. The tag is for tracking and the fin is for a secondary identifier if the tag falls off. The spine is a non lethal way to age the fish (they can count rings like on a tree). This is not maiming a fish to mark it for the heck of it. LOL
