    I would like to know if any members here, have ever eaten any fish out of the ohio, or if they do it reguraly, or not at all

    I know there's some plus 50 pounders in the ohio ,but i like to keep some of the fish i catch and just the sport of catching them isn't enough for me so i don't fish there.

    It would be great to know if anyone has gotten sick or just knows if the fish aren't in good enough condition, because its less than 2 miles away from my house.

    I have eaten fish out of the ohio a few times...They taste just like any other catfish...My fiances mom really likes them...I cleaned her a batch a few mionths ago and she said they were excelent...I dont think you should eat them everyday though.

    I think the DNR says 2 or 3 meals a month is fine, thats why i say i wouldnt eat them everyday...You can go to the dnr fish advisery and it tell you all the info i think you are looking for, if i can find the site i will post it for you.

    Yeah i would say you would be fine as long as you don't eat it everyday you should be fine cause im wanting some cajun catfish right now next time i got im going for a large amount of average fish (don't worry brothers any monster i catch just pictures).
