Hi All, I'm relatively new to catfishing, and so far its been quite a blast! hooked into a bunch of large channels, but the elusive flattie is still my number one target... Anyway, I have a question that I'm hoping some can clear up for me... What's the best way to handle cats? I don't have any trouble with the smaller ones, but when they get too big for my hand to go around, I struggle a bit. I have a fish handler/scale, but sometimes they just move around too much... Can catfish be safely "lipped"? I've seen many pictures of people holding channels and flatheads by the mouth, but I've also been told by people to never put your hand in the mouth of a catfish... Any help would be most appreciated!!! Thanks!
