According to the VDGIF regs, catfish don't seem to be game fish


So, as I read the regs, I guess hand fishing for them is legal. The game fish section of the regs says "hook and line or rod and reel" only, but the approved methods for non game fish include hand. The surprising bit is that cats don't qualify as game fish. The only thing that looks like it could be illegal about hand fishing for catfish in Virginia is if a noodler is using SCUBA equipment.
