    Anyone know any good fishing spots in southern cali, i live in los angeles county. Any good lakes that don't cost a lot and are pretty good. Can someone please send me pics on how to gut a catfish. Like any other fish i catch like trout, i just chop the head off and take the guts out thats how a man guts it lol:smile2:.

    you dont have to gut catfish at all, you fillet them from the ribs down to the tail for meat anyways

    Gutting a catfish is similar to gutting any sportfish of that size; you want to be careful not to cut open the internal organs. However, to remove the gills, you may have to use a knife or scissors. If you'd like to see a video on how to fillet one,

    shows Jack Caldwell's demonstration.
