Catfish Recipes
Somedays are awesome!!!
Started fishing about 5 yesterday with chicken gizzards (had livers, but they were taking them off of the hook); 1 1/2 hours & 2 whole gizzards later I had to stop cause my old rod snapped an eyelet off the end as I pulled in the last one.

Well, all that to say this; 7 catfish; 37 lbs on the scale; largest one was 29" long!!!!

OK, I am bragging a little, sorry; now for the real deal; you old timers (guys or gals) give me some recipes!!!

tater50, I've never caught a catfish, never skinned one, never cooked one, and have no recipes. I don't think there even are catfish where I live. But if I lived in your area, I'd sure help you test those recipes, ever since I found out how delicious catfish are while on a driving trip to Mississippi and Louisiana.

John, when I was growing up in the late 50's and early 60's, I would go all night catfishing with my grandfather and/or uncles. We fished on "Turkey Creek" 20 miles north of Birmingham.

We would have to build several campfires around us in order to keep the water moccasins away. Also, since the bank where we usually fished was about 6 feet above the water, we always carried long cane poles with us so we could reach the stringers of fish that we would hang from the bank. That was in order to smack the snakes in the head when they started eating our fish on the stringers.

Lightly breaded with corn meal, cajun spices, lemon juice, and fried in peanut oil--mighty good eatin!

Southpaw: you hit the nail on the head on the recipe; did exactly that; used some Lefty Cajun Spice, oil & slow cooked for 30 minutes; wish I could have saved you a piece, but you know.............When I started eating,, I plum forgot your name.... Senior Moment I guess!!!

Next batch: eggs, corn meal, little flour, buttermilk, zesty italian dressing, lemon pepper & garlic batter: cook slow then add some lemon juice.

Better get started!!!!!!!!

T50 -
1 fillet the catfish
2 cut the red strips off the fillet skin side as this
will take some harsh taste from the fish
3 mix yellow mustard with beer (or water) to a thick soup
and soak fillets for a few minutes
4 salt to taste
5 roll fillet in yellow cornmeal
6 fry

You can not taste the mustard, however, the catfish will
have a great flavor.
