Snagged a nice cat last week

Finished breakfast with Ms A and stepped out back to fish for a few minutes. Snagged this guy on the first cast with a Gulp Freshwater Worm.

Nice fish.  Good eating coming up.

Wouldn't take but a few of those and you could have a real nice fish fry.  Good eatin' for sure!

Damn, nice fish Danny. My son cooked me some nice catfish filets the other night that he soaked in milk for about 30 minutes and then coated in flour, and cooked in oil in a CI skillet, mighty tasty.

That's kinda my favorite sort of fishing trip this time of year- right out back, right back in. Well played.
Fryer or freezer?

I cut him loose, never have had the fish tested here to see that they are safe although I have never seen a sick one come out of here. You hear all kinds of things about the fish in the canals here, mercury, pesticides, phosphates...
We have Apple Snails (Escargot) Large mouth bass, channel cat and several invasive things like Firemouth, Oscars, Dempsys, glass shrimp and I saw a guy catch an Irriwana (sp) out there last year. Most ate good eating I just have to make sure they are safe

Nice cat!
