    Catfishing trip

    Friday night I took my granddaughter and my buddy's son catfishing on a local private lake. It was the first time either of them caught a big fish and we had a blast. We caught fish for three hours but only kept the ones that were 18" or bigger. Here's a pic of the channel cats we kept:

    And whether pigs have wings.”

    AMAZING, 18 inches, or so...I would so love to catch something that size, lol Are they good eating, when they're that big? Who gets to clean them? I've been eating catfish since I was a kid but never caught one. I bet the kids were having a blast, hauling in those monsters!

    Nice mess of channel cats, but I'd hate to have to skin and clean them all...

    Thanks Rach! I'll definitely give it a try. We're gonna go again this coming friday night and try for another good catch so we have enough for a Memorial Day fish fry at my house.

    I didn't skin them. I cut the fillets off of the side and then ran the knife down between the meat and skin to come away with clean fillets. I should video it for y'all. It's much, much easier than skinning with pliers.
