I punted a foot long catfish, barefooted when I was younger. I got spined bad in the foot. Swelled up pretty good and I had trouble walking. It went down after a day. I would say the bigger worry is bacteria from the water getting in your blood system. Neosporin and Bacitracin always work well against infection.

Thank you all for the info, did a little research and found out that a very small percentage of catfish have venom.

just remember to grip them right and if its a big one then grab it through the gills or be brave and grab him by the mouth
