Wow   Smoked. Fried Catfish  And I'd bet Crappie would be Fantastic.

Thanks Gary!!

Yup, Catfish are actually my favorite, but Crappies, Bluegills, and Perch are close behind, plus a few other similar Fresh water fish.

Looks good.  Can't wait to get home.

Thanks Okie!!

Sorry about your wait, but it's too cold around here right now for Crappies.

Any good fishing in India??

Nice filets Bear! We get alot of crappie at the cabin usually not quite large enough for pan frying but we do a lot of fish fry with them for the neighbors. My biggest is mounted next to my mother's. Hers is 17 and mine is 16.5 which are slobs from out lake.

I would say homemade tartar you would love even more! Mayo, dill relish, little sugar or substrate, pepper, and Chesapeake Bay seasoning (old bay like) grate little onion if like that as well.

Nice looking fish.

 

Thank You Foamy!!

Catties are still my Favorite, and I always forget to mention one of my other favorites----Eel (American Eeel) are very similar to Catfish.
