Amazing Catfish Cleaning Method

Amazing Catfish Cleaning Method

Corinth, Mississippi catfish guide Phil King is known for his catches of humongous Tennessee River cats. Here's King's award-winning step-by-step catfish cleaning technique. His most recent official elapsed time at cleaning a cat is 11.03 seconds. Let us know if you can better that time.

You'll need an eatin'-sized catfish and the right tools for the job, including a Kevlar fish-cleaning glove, a sharp filet knife, and a good skinning tool like the Mayburn Catfish Skinner. Place the fish lengthwise on a table in front of you.
