Had a great fishing trip this weekend. Went to the river and sackedemup. Caught over 100lb. of blues, channels and flathead catfish. The dang stinger was so heavy I had to get help to get it in the pickup. :pickle:



We also got to snag some huge gar. We took a pic of the first one we got in, and of course it was the smallest one all day...seriously...



Later on in the day my buddy got one up to the bank that would have weighed over 50lb!! He kept saying "grab him, grab him on the tail", but for some reason I was a little reluctant to jump in the water with that toothed monster...he got away.

That's alot of serious fish frying going on there. Is that gar fish a member of the Pike fish family cuz I see those up here once in a while in ponds and older stagnant runoffs and such. How do you cook up a catfish?

I like to mix up a seasoned flour mix with about 30% yellow corn meal. Dip the catfish in milk/egg then coat them in the dry mix and deep fry. Peanut oil is great for fish.
I add Loureys, garlic,a dash of cayenne pepper, lemon/pepper/ papprica/bread crumbs to regular flour. Sounds like a lot but it comes out pretty good. I use this for all deep fried fish. I make up a big batch and put it in the freezer for storage. Thats a nice catch!

lol yes we eat them they are called spoonbill. their eggs are also the american caviar. that is the fish that snaging seasson is for. they only eat plankton ( so they just swim around with their mouths open). they are found in most rivers and in some large lakes/tailwaters they do prefer curent. they are a great eating fish. they are identacly to the sturgon in meat and in the eggs. and they are boneless their spine is like a silicone worm.
