Can you catch and release fish without a license?

Where I live it is perfectly legal to fish in the county you live in, with live bait, with intent to release, without a license at all. To use lures, or to keep your catch, or to use artificial bait, or to live bait fish in a county other than where you live, you need a license.

Can you use catfish as bait in Texas?

Catfish for Bait
No, I am not talking about putting flatheads or even blue or channel cats on a hook. The law does not protect yellow, brown and black bullheads, meaning anglers can legally use them as bait and, according to Lewis Hogan of Orange, there is nothing better for big flatheads.
