Just cut in chunks or strips salt pepper and meal it and fry it . As someone else said fresh caught is only way to eat them.

The ones I saw caught in South La where they eat anything and everything, theyskinned, then boiled the flesh off the bones and somehow made some kind of battered balls out of the flesh and deep fried them, same as they do garfish balls. Called choupique (pronounced shoe pik) over there.

I fish for bass, white perch and catfish in Palo Gouch creek. It's south of Pendleton bridge on the Texas side. You have everything you need in that area of the lake, without having to run for miles, deep,shallow, grass beds. If your fishing with a guide he'll have brush piles to fish. In the fall, most fish are chasing shad, feeding up for winter. Shad colored crank baits and spinner baits is my go to.

Caustic Burno wrote:The grinnell were biting this morning, never remember catching four on a bass trip before. Not unusual to catch one every so often. They were nice fish running between 3 and 4 pounds .
If they were as plentiful as bass people would quit bass, pound for pound bass can’t hold a candle to grinnell for fight.


Are they good eating Caustic?

Depends on your taste I guess. (I'm not really fond of the taste of a largemouth bass)

Yep, only thing I keep for eating is catfish and crappie. The rest gets released. Even grinnell

I've eaten lots of whites, hybrids and a few stripes too...catfish is probably my favorite for fw fish tho.
I was going to try to clean a chain pickerel once, but the thing stunk so bad alive, I was afraid to.

We have red fin pike, most are about hand size. Very sweet you just fry them crisp and eat bones and all. Probably the best freshwater fish eating wise. IMO

If you like eating coons and possums, pretty good bet you'll like mudfish.

Any special considerations as to preparing and cooking, or just meal and peanut oil? I grew up being told you couldn’t eat them but somewhere along the way I heard different. And now you confirm that they are indeed edible.

Eat a turd first then these are not bad at all. :lol: :lol: Might rate them right along beside carp.
