Question about cats...

7 posts in this topic

I've never fished catfish before, but recently have been catching a lot of them at a local lake. I have never eaten them, but have heard they are tasty. Would you recommend eating them this time of year, the lake I have been fishing is only about 12 foot deep max. Thanks.

The smaller ones would probably be tasty. Give it a shot and take a couple home next time your out.

You Tube has some great clips on how to clean and prep cats.

Good luck.

In a lake, I would go for it. Smaller the better on channels like LFC said.

We all have had catfish in this forum, well almost all.

Come out to the Cool Cats on the Horse Shoe chain this winter.

Do not let these guys fool ya, they know how to make up a mean mess of catfish.

I thought Borch brought the secrete mix last year confused

If one fish tastes good in one lake, chances are more than likely the rest of them would to.

There's that natural chemical in water that makes fish tastes muddy yuck and when water is warm, there's a higher concentration of it. That's more muddy yuck flavor in the fish meat.

catfish are delicious and pretty easy to prepare.

1) fillet

2) batter

3) fry

as simple as that. The part where "secret recipes" come in is usually in batter and seasonings. I'll often throw in some cayenne pepper, paprika, and anything else on hand that sounds good on fish. You can probably find good recipes if you search "cajun catfish recipe" on google, they make a mean fish dish down south (catfish is probably the most popular eating fish in the louisiana/texas/mississippi area, unless you are near a town right next to the gulf).

I have heard catfish is one of the most commonly consumed fish world wide. Maybe farm raised, but still a catfish.

Borch, they where great grin.

It took a team to put together that meal, from Borch, Hanson, Eddie, Dtro and others, but it worked out and tasted awesome cool. Plus all the other foods.

It was the best meal I ever had consumed on the ice.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
