Wels get MUCH bigger than CC, if I remember correctly. Might be more like raising blue cats or flatheads...

I wish we could get them. I need about a 150 pounder to eat the otters. But then, it would also eat all the other fish.....bummer.

Hi Matija I have a question do you guys ever eat red fin perch or zander they seem pretty similar to walleyes and perch and those are some of the best eating we get in the northern part of the states but i seems that all the fishing for them is trophy fishing

Wels are good for controlling other fish
