Whack him once for me. Good to hear from you CFP. Just how do you hold them catfish the correct way? I usually grab them from the top of the head with the spiked fin between my fingers......well unless the dern thing is to big across the head to grab.
I know that I told you to do it that way, but it's probably not the best way for the fish. That was the quickest way to tell you how to handle it. Plus, if the fish is big enough I have had them clamp down pretty hard on my fingers with their gills!!! If I were going to fish for the giant farm pond ones the best way would be to have a heavy duty glove and grab them by the mouth. They'd still clamp but you probably wouldn't bleed. If I plan on grabbing them like in the photo of my nephew I usually try to grab them by the belly and situate my hands around those monstrous prickly fins!!! THOSE HURT!!!:whinging::whinging:
