Did you get to skin the catfish before you ate it? ;D First time is the hardest. I know where i will be on Friday night. I just got back from Cabela's and have new Catfish gear to try. I have just got the craving for catfish again and i will go to all lengths to get some! I am from the south and know what a real cat tastes like and no restruant has even come close! Fry them with Louisiana Cajun Fish Fry or with Cornmeal seasoned to taste.
