I'm an ole' Saltwater fisherman myself. I see a lot of folks on this site are mainly freshwater anglers. The only thing I know about freshwater is..I drink it and take a bath in it !!
I went to see a weigh-in at West Lake Tawakoni about 4 years ago in Feb. or March, I forget. It was that Cabela's King Kat event. I saw some hefty cats brought in. I'm sure these were released later. But, you guys and gals that catch the BIG Cats, what do you do with yours? I know with these big Bull Reds etc., most folks don't keep them bc the smaller slot Reds are better for the table. Tell me about your catches?
