So About Those Giant Catfish…

Yesterday a reader sent in a photo and story of catching (and releasing) a giant catfish from the Potomac river. Another reader sends a very different experience:

“They pull huge ones out like that every week. And eat them. This photo [Ed. Note: explicit photo after the jump.] is right across from the Watergate near the bike path, dude gutting a 35lb fish on a Thursday morning….”

Another reader asked @Dinodc (3435 Connecticut Ave, NW) on twitter:

“Is this the invasive blue catfish?” @Dinodc replied:

“They are. And they are tasty. MD DNR recommends them for eating too.

We are serving them with ramps, asparagus butter w/sweet potato & turnip mash!”

Photo after the jump. Warning do not click if squeamish – very explicit photo of fish being gutted
