Basically what I have always done is cut out the back strap of the cats, and cube them into about 1" squares. Batter em up with corn meal, throw em in the fryer. Mix up a nice batch of hush puppies, cut some taters, and warm some baked beans and you are good to go. Finish off with a nice glass of sweet tea. Dinner for a winner there.

cut them up into decent size chunks and I will either batter and fry them or use cajun seasoning and blacken them, cajun catfish is awesome!

Put them on tinfoil and grill them with butter and seasoning. Otherwise broil them the same way.

If youhave enough of them do this. Fillet them and then place the fillets in the blender or food processor. Grind the fish up into fish flakes. Now take some corn meal and make fish patties out of the fish flakes. Place the patties on a greased cookie pan and when the pan is covered take some wax paper and cover the patties. Then start a new row of patties and another and another until the fish is gone.

Freeze the patties in the freezer. Next winter when you weant a good lunch go down to the freezer and take a few paties out of the freezer. Fry them until they are golden broan and serve them over toast. Then makes some cream peas and cover the toast and fish with the cream peas. mmmm good! Trust me!

What I do is take fillets dip in flour then in milk with 1 egg then in panko flakes with tons of canjun seasoning While i do that i have a cookie pan on the grill getting hot. Then I put some olive oil on cookie sheet and put fillets on the oil. about 5 min or so a side. I like putting the fillet on french bread with lots of tarter sauce.

    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud.

    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
    • That would be my guess as well... If you run it "as is" you are going to wreck the motor due to the lean condition.
    • Man, this place used to be hopping with all kinds of posts and some great info being shared.  What happened?  This place is almost as dead as Aaron Hernandez.
    • How about the ones sold at fleet farm.  Full jacket military stuff probably not optimum for defense..so the normal stuff.
