Would agree. My first year surf fishing I didn't know they were "trash fish" and we fried them up and ate the snot out of them. Now that I know they are trash fish we fry them up and eat the snot out of them.All of them have been ID'd correctly, but I disagree on the "don't eats" for either of the catfish. Both are excellent if fried and the gafftopsail catfish are great blackened too. Most people turn their noses up to catfish either haven't tried it, or didn't get all of the dark red meat off. You clean them of the dark red meat and they are GREAT!
