Bullhead Catfish

As kids we fished for bullhead catfish a lot. They would bite on just about anything; and the creeks and sloughs were full of them. Dipped in corn meal and fried in a generous layer of oil, they made a very tasty meal. They could ,however, be difficult to clean. We would nail their heads to a wooden plank; and being careful of the sharp spines, use pliers to pull the skin off. Perhaps a little gruesome, but effective!

    Hey, John, good work! I also remember the complex followup to having caught bunch of these whiskered, spiny critters.
