Creature Comforts: Catfish Tagging
Bob Crosby has been fishing the Mississippi River for over 25 years and is always on the hunt for his next trophy fish. As the owner and operator of Blue Cat Guide Service, Bob wanted to understand the behavior and movements of the big catfish that swim the Mississippi River. In a cooperative program with the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks he and his angler friends are tagging the catfish of the river in hopes of studying them more. Larry Bull, Assistant Director Of Fisheries, along with Bob talk about the work they have completed with the fish and how they need the help from the public tracking these fish.
