    wise old man told me if you get horned by catfish ,rub the sore spot on the belly of the catfish and it will take soreness out. It did work

    Heck, it only takes getting finned once to learn that lesson. My dad taught me how to grab those suckers to avoid that problem. Under the belly with your thumb behind one side fin and index finger behind the other. Works well with the smaller ones, but not so much with the bigger cats. With the big ones, I just put on my two dollar catfish gloves from Wal-Mart and grab'em by the mouth. :smile2:

    It works been using that to take care of the pain and keep it from making a bad sore for years. Even my great Grand paw did that.

    Both it works. We cleaned hundreds of pounds of fish a day and your going to get that one fish that sticks you. May not sound great, but sure works.
    As for shaking hands. Shoot you wash them later on its not like you leave it on there for weeks LOL

    After all, what would be least infectious anyway...that, or catfish belly slime? Sounds like a close competition, if you ask me! :eek:oooh::tounge_out:

    I went to throw back a gar about 3 pounds last year and as I went to let him go he shook violently out of my hand..each tooth of that fish cut my palm as he splashed back into the water..I have used a catfish to stop the pain of getting barbed so I tried it on my hand..within a few seconds my hand stopped bleeding and the pain was completly gone. While waiting for the fish to bite I counted over 50 cuts on my hand from those teeth. Would have got blood all over my pants if I tried Shiloh Red's treatment!.. And what if you just went to the bathroom? Should we start saving a cup or two?:confused2:

    Always keep a cup of pee in your first aid box just in case!
