Best ever was my first set of in laws. They had a cabin on Thompson Lake in MT. They had pretty much what was like a witch’s caldron full of oil. They’d hang it over a fire and we’d basket dip a ton of flowered and salt/peppered filets of bass, perch, sunfish, and pike in it. Soooo good. I think they used the same oil all summer, probably what contributed to the taste ;)

I love shore lunch or the spicy shore lunch, but my wife is gluten free, so I usually mix 50/50 gluten free flour and corn meal with salt, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and pepper. Soak the fish in milk, combine all the dry ingredients in a gallon ziplock, toss some fillets in the ziplock and shake, then fry. I also used to mix 50/50 breadcrumbs and flour with a similar spice mix. Season to taste with salt or seasoned salt immediately after the fish comes out of the oil.

I'm partial to tempura/panko combo. I season the tempura batter with salt, and then mix creole seasoning into the panko breading. Very light layer of tempura, right into the panko, and then I usually pan fry with about 1/2" of oil, since I don't have a deep fryer. Crispy, light, just the right amount of heat and flavor. Whole jar of Marina Tartar sauce. mmmmmmhmmmmmm

dont cuss it til you've tried it, but here goes.

rather than using the "normal" milk and egg batter, use yellow mustard + spicy seasoning (Tony Chacheres) for your wet batter, then roll it in whatever dry batter you prefer (cornmeal, or one of the premix bags).

the mustard gives the fish a "zing" that it wont have otherwise.

process:

1. cut the catfish fillets into ~1" wide strips (about like a chicken strip)
2. DRY them off. I use a spaghetti strainer to get as much water as possible out of them
3. mix up the mustard+spice in large mixing bowl
4. put catfish meat into the bowl and mix it up real good
5. put in fridge for a couple hours at LEAST, or as much as a day to let that mustard soak into the fillets
6. roll the meat in dry batter
7. fry at 325F for about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally
8. enjoy, and wonder why you never had it like this before.

I got that recipe from a catfish guide about 10 years ago, and I wont hardly make them any other way.

we catch ALOT of catfish every year between March and May.
