I know in cajun country they use them for crawfish bait.. and they are trying to get people eating their ribs... but..I was watching a show the other night and some guys were up north.. maybe Wi. or Mn. and had a huge seine and I think they had like 10,000 pounds of buffalo... what on earth would you do with so many?

There used to be a couple of soul food restaurants in south memphis that served buffalo fish "fresh". They had it proudly posted on their outdoor signs.

I think the show you are talking about is called bottom feeders. It comes on tonight at 9:30 on the outdoor channel. A quick Google search shows that a lot of places in Europe eat carp and Jewish ppl eat it as well.

I was watching Relentless Pursuit the other night and Tim Wells was shooting buffalo. He said that they were excellent smoked.

I cant believe you guys. Buffalo is as good an eating fish as there is. Knowing how to clean a buffalo is the trick. They are full of small bones, but dressed right you can remove alot of these. My choice over catfish anyday.Laugh if you want, but a hot plate of buffalo is hard to beat.

Place in Omaha called Joe Tess has deep fried Carp and man is that stuff good. He was on Diners Driveins & Dives a few years ago. They also have catfish but most get the carp. Should be a youtube video if you google it.

Carp is what eastern europeans have at Christmas. Fish is kept in a filtered tank for a few days prior to being cooked. I work with two Czech guys.

In Wisconsin we buried them in the garden most of the time.

If we got it out of a really nice clear water, we might smoke them and eat it on ritz crackers, but that was the rare case.

I heard Buffalo was good if you know what you are doing with it. supposedly it is sweet.

I don't eat fish, I just throw them back, so I wouldn't know.

If you've ever eat "fish sticks" then you've probably at one point or another eat buffalo, or common carp. There's a reason there called "fish" sticks instead of carp, buffalo, redhorse or drum sticks (drum sticks, haha).
Its just like fast food places advertising their hamburgers are 100% beef. Well of course its 100%, but that could be tongue, hooves or rectums. As long as it comes from bovines, its beef. Same with the fish.

There's a huge commercial fishery for rough fish.

Buffalo is a very white meat.
