I've been having a ton of fun fishing for these as late, and it keeps me in shape for steelie fish'n. However last time out, the wind was blowing and there was a pollen on the water, which made sight fishing a bit more challenging. After finally "dialing in" something the would take, I decided to cut one open to see what it was eating. What I found, led me to ask maybe the dumbest question ever. Has anyone ever tried eating one of these fish? After every study I've done on these fish, they pretty much eat everything a trout does (except trout will eat dead decaying stuff - whereas a carp will not) and they eat their "fruits and veggies" as well - seeds, flower pedals, etc. I'm sure, just like trout, that if caught in a dirty mud puddle, they probably wouldn't taste that great. Yet a few places that I catch them, the water isn't dirty or polluted. Their meat is white like a halibut or other fish with similar meat... so... ? Hey, I warned you it might be the dumbest question ever, just say'n. And before you say it, I'll beat you to it - "Hey, eat one and get back to us." Well, I might actually just do that... Just wondering if anyone has ever tried them. Just think, Catfish aren't exactly a "sexy" fish - but they sure are yummy!
