    Anyone that has handled catfish has most likely been finned at one time or another. Did you ever wipe some of the slime off cat into wound?

    If its a little cat,I rub the belly on the sting,I have noticed that the bigger cats spines are'nt as sharp as the ones under a couple pounds tho.

    Ive done it and it didnt do a thing for me.

    I just clean of the puncture and soak it in salt when I get home. Ive done it more than once and I think its mental if it works,,,

    Nate, the best preventitive measure is to catch bigger cats. LOL You fish for little ones, you generally catch little ones. You fish for big ones, you generally go home without catching any. That's life.

    My thinking is if Shane has caught a bunch of fish and never been finned then someone else must be taking them off the hook for him. Just joking here. I haven't found anything that really makes getting finned feel any better. I'll try rubbing the cats belly and if that doesn't work then I'll rub mine.

    Wash your finnded area, with household bleach, it works, old man told me about it a few years ago. I use bullheads for bait and get finned quite often.
    just wash my hand, with bleach when I get ,home.
