We couldn’t be more proud to announce that Texas Trophy Catfish Association is now classified as a 501(c)3 Non-Profit charity, with our very own Kevin Rogers as TXTCA President and Brad Doyle as TXTCA Vice President!
The Texas Trophy Catfish Association (TXTCA) was established to improve regulations to protect Trophy Catfish on Texas waters through spreading awareness, educating the fishing community, and encouraging action within the industry and practice of Catch Photo Release, or “CPR.”
Trophy Catfish located in Texas are declining in numbers and need to be protected to preserve. Through use of practices such as CPR, we are able to preserve these magnificent Catfish for generations to come. Through educating the industry and encouraging action, we hope to improve regulations.
In addition to practicing CPR , we must educate others of the problems we are facing with the decline and encourage action to work towards better regulations to protect Trophy Catfish in the state. Through spreading awareness, educating others, and practicing CPR, we can make a difference to have a positive impact for the future.
What is CPR?
No, it does not require mouth to mouth with a catfish unless you just really love catfish. CPR stands for “Catch Photo Release”. This is a method of fishing in which you catch a fish, take a photo, and release the fish back into the water.
