a couple years ago, i went with my cousin to a stocked catfish farm. i'd say it's probably really the kind of thing you'd take a kid to, to make sure they caught something. i hate fishing. just never got the attraction. but i wanted fresh fish and like being outside. my cousin was hilarious, she was so thrilled to reel in fish after fish and there were some good sized ones, too. i was hauling them in too but just got bored with it so the guy who was working there took my rod and fished for me!! they charge you so much per pound for the whole fish, then they'll clean them for "free" if you want them to. i had a good haul, they were fresh and i enjoyed being out there so it was cool. the hilarious thing is, after cleaning, the filets ended up being about $15/pound!! only slightly outrageous but they tasted good!
