large channel catfish in small pond

I have a large channel catfish in my small pond. It is in there until I can find what do with it. It is very skinny and I am going to wait until I get the 110 gallon or move so I can build a large pond. I might even just decide to fillet it and eat it. what do you think i should do with it?

10 gallon tank - 2 Ghost shrimp, fry, 1 Soft shell turtle, 5 crayfish, 1 baby catfish
10 gallon tank - 1 marbled crayfish in berry
50 gallon tank - 2 male guppies, 1 female guppy, 2 zebra danios, 1 pearl danio, 1 Angelfish, 1 male platy, 2 female platys, 2 silvery minnows
Pond - 1 cooter, 1 RES, 4 goldfish(my baby sis poisoned my pond)

Throw in some catfish pellets and some red worms or earth worms.
Now you know, if you start feeding and caring for this catfish, you will not be able to eat it!

I'd say eat it, since catfish tastes delicious. haha. Just kidding.

Hmm, I agree you could feed it earthworms.

Your fish love watching you as much as you love watching them. So please practice responsible fishkeeping.
