I talked to a local(St. Francisville) game warden yesterday and asked about gigging catfish. He said it was not illegal since catfish are not game fish. He said the HE would not issue a citation for spearing/gigging catfish. He also pointed me to the complete set of Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries regulations (Title 56). All 391 pages of it...I will be reading for a while!
