Hello again, Italo. I don\’t know if you\’ve ever answered this question before or not but I want to ask if you eat some of the channel catfish you catch and if so, do you ever bleed it out before you clean it? I never do but if it improves the taste I might consider doing it. Thanks. God Bless!

Hi Steve….It\’s been a long time since I have eaten channel catfish. All of the ones we have caught over the last few years have been released. I have been told that if fishe are to be kept for eating, cleaned and than frozen, that it\’s best to “bleed-them” as soon as they are caught so that they keep better for longer periods of time. If fish are cleaned and eating right away (shorelunch), I don\’t think that has to be done…God bless you and your family also, Italo
