This is a very nice looking meal. I used to have catfish a lot when I lived in Arkansas. Which I caught myself. Haven't had it in many years. But, with all these threads on it. I might risk buying some frozen fillets and trying it.

Thanks Steve! Frozen would be fine but check Wal-Mart where they have the non frozen fish. Ive seen catfish in that section before. Looked to be pretty nice ones. And you dont have to buy a big bag of them that way.

Just be careful of the fish from Wallyworld it may be from the dirty ponds of other nations.

Ok let's talk more Ohio boys. Sowsage Sowsage jcam222 jcam222 Sandusky Bay cats? Yea/nay. I plan to at least try some, bleed a few, and experiment. I think the locals still remember the Bay when it was real bad...

I can say in the last 4-5 years ive caught plenty of channel cats out of Erie while walleye fishing. But usually up around the islands. All have been good clean fish.

This is true. Especially with tilapia...check the source for sure!
They have a cat fish they call Swahi from Vietnam. Not sure if I seen it some where here on the forum or just where but only catfish raised in the USA can carry the label catfish all others have to be under a different name such as Swahi then say catfish.

Good info Warren! Mom loves swai but does not eat local catfish unless smoked... This could be interesting.
