Wrong and right.
Catfish taste great ... actually delightful with the exception of Mud Cats, who scavenge off the bottom and eat unmentionables.
And yes, bigger catfish don't taste as good. 2 -3 pounders are just the right size to eat.
Biggest catfish around here are in the hundred pound range and live in the deep water around the dam at the local lake. Same stories here as elsewhere ... divers go down and see them and get the h#ll out of there.
I'm just a little Hawaiian and a homesick Island boy,
I want to go back to my fish and poi ...
