If the hook is lodged too deep down, there is not much you can do than go Fred's way, otherwise a good disgorger should work well.
Using larger hooks and bait usually keep nuisance fish away(that's the way i go) unless specifically fishing for smaller species.
Problem with catfish is they will take any size hook, and any bait, but atleast with a bigger hook, it can be removed more easlily.

Take a look at the subject "catch and release" under general off topic on the forum. If it is the fish you are looking to safe, they usually say cut the line and let the hook remain. The hook is supposed to rust and fall off with time....but if its the hook you want to save then its Fred's way :D

Circle hooks at 99% of the time prevent gut hooking and also increase the hook up rates, but if you like setting the hook then they are not the hooks to look after. The other way to prevent gut hooking will be to set the hook immediately, ie. before the fish swallows the bait.
