Actually quite nice, I just decided to beer batter it, made some slaw and it was a nice break from beef and potatoes.
I grew up eating catfish in the south so nothing is too harsh for me

I can still see my dad taking out all the catfish bones for us when we were little..... One time I tried to filet one, (or whatever you call it when you take the pliers and yank the spine out).....I tore up the fish....

I don't 'do' fish...(no shellfish either)...my husband will sometimes order trout if we are in a 'mountainish' restaurant..(he has a favorite little place near Mammoth)...and he does salmon out on the grill for himself.... I don't allow it to be cooked in the house....can't take the smell... I cook bacon outside in an electric skillet on the patio....can't take that smell in the house either...

Glad it turned out for you......did you ever find out what kind it was?

"Small town peeping toms! Hmmmmm, I remember a small town I lived in not long ago where the son of a local businessman was caught peeking in the bathroom window of the town cops very young and pretty wife !
Oh my, I don't think anything happened to him except a minor scolding that most likely didn't do him any good. "
Reminds me of my peeping toms, I even took pictures of them, hope they come through ok...

Catfish good! Buttery flavour. I like it for breakfast!

Pike is good too, and you get plenty of it with each fish Did you try the roe, if it had some? It's supposed to be good.

There are a couple of nice lakes in CA..(well, there are many nice lakes, but I am talking about just a couple....LOL).....can't remember where they are anymore...I am pretty sure they are alpine lakes......at one time, somebody threw in a couple of pike and they have taken over.....they kill all the nice fish, such as trout or bass or whatever.... They have even drained one of them to try to start over because it was one of the top fishing lakes where guys go when they are trying to catch the biggest one so that they can win a prize......it was really sad to read about it... The pike had a very mean nickname because they are so destructive.... I recall that they had also tried to dynamite the water and get them out that way, too.....and they also put poison into the water at one point....(but it was not the type of poison that would hurt people in case it got into drinking water)..

I'm obviously not a fisherman, (duh) or else I might have been more apt to remember the specific details....

I was at Mammoth one time and rowed a boat into some rocks and a fisherman had to jump off the rocks and back onto land...he threw his pole down into the water and ran......so I guess I'm not a rowboat person either....

That name is not ringing a bell so there must be several.....I know I have read more than one article in the L.A. Times about the issues in CA lakes.....
