I guess everyone that's been fishing has, at one time or another, been poked by a catfish spine. Really hurts huh? Heres a tip I just got and couldn't wait to share it.
They all have sharp, mildly venomous spines on each
pectoral fin and on the dorsal fin. The venom is not
normally harmful to humans, but if it stings too
much for you, here is a little known trick to make
it go away.
Simply rub the catfish's tail over the wound and it
will stop hurting.
The mucous that all catfish secrete has an antidote
for the venom in it.
