Years back, my dad stepped on a Catfish that was partially buried in the sand while catching sandfleas. The barb broke off in his foot and doctors were unable to remove it. Over time it worked its way out of the top of his foot, but it was a nasty wound until then. I dont know how the catfish got there, but I know back in the day, people would throw them on the beach to die because they hated them so bad. If possible get them back in the water ASAP.

I saw the same thing several years ago on perdido key, except it was a sting ray. A couple guys were throwing a football and one of them stepped on dried up sting ray carcass that was buried in the sand. It was pretty far up the beach.
I think in that case there had been a fish kill from red tide, then a storm kicked the surf real big and washed alot of dead catfish and sting rays.
I agree though, I never leave catfish on the beach for that reason....even though I hate those things!
