I have a commercial smoker and have smoked many bluefish, trout and salmon but never catfish. I have a good bit of blue cat fillets and thought about smoking some..............Gary
Dougeeboy, check your PMail.Earl Ashenfelter, famed Susquehanna River guide(below Conowingo), converted an old refrigerator into a fish smoker. He said that when he would bring home a bunch of catties from the river, he would fire up the refrigerator/smoker. Within hours his neighbors would stop by to "reintroduce" themselves, LOL!! He was a fantastic Striper fisherman as well, particularly partial to topwater plugging with Atom poppers. He also was incredibly adept at slow trolling with skinny surgical tubing eels with a small piece of bloodworm attached. I eventually started making my own in a terra cotta color with an S-bend. I was so captured by the techniques he showed me, I purchased an old wooden rowboat and kept it @Ray and Helen Spangler's place on the Cecil County side above Port Deposit back in the 70's. The way that Earl negotiated the rock infested(upper end) of the river was amazing! This was done with Conowingo's various speeds of water flow per amount of gates that were opened. Yep, those were the days!!
Yes but it was decriminalized in MD in small amounts so you won't go to jail if they just catch you with a meal's worth.It is only legal with fish under 24 ounces in DC. Still illegal in MD...... Gary
