I have a small pond that has way too many catfish in it. Does anyone want a bunch of fish or can anyone help with recommendations on the best way to get rid of a bunch?

Sorry I didnt give more details. The pond is very small about 100 feet diameter. I have a few channels I want to keep its the mud cats I am trying to thin out as they seem to reproduce at a much faster rate. We feed the fish and have eaten many of the mud cats, which taste great. They seem to be the most plentiful around the 10 to 14 inch size. I would welcome anyone over that would like to catch and keep a bunch of the mud cats, as many as you want to mess with.

We can even throw a cast net out and make easy work of it grin

Man I wish I was closer to you. I'd pull a bunch. Where I grew up in CO about the only catfish we had were bullheads. My mother used to fry them up with eggs for breakfast.

Thank you for the generous offer. I spend most my time in Amarillo but if I get down that way I'll take you up on it.

I second the trap idea. I can't stand getting catfish in my cast nets.

I was going to say cast net but you figured that out.

I'd throw in a couple 20-30 lb flathead


PB flathead 34.5 lbs - I know it's small but it was still the record for Lake Travis when I caught it!
PB Blue 58.5 lbs jugline 43.5 lbs on R&R which was the other Lake Travis record when caught.
