I really like fresh fried mullet also. Do you mix cracker and corn meal when you fry fish?

I disagree nothing beats a good channel or blue cat in cornmeal and fried.

I like chasing jugs.


Small fish. Under 2 pounds outta flowing river in cool weather are hard to beat.
The belly meat from a big yellow cat has the buttery flavor of some saltwater fish, but it involves killing a big fish for a little usable meat. I usually release any big ones.
Fed fish outta my tanks , we stop feeding several days before we take a bunch out. Otherwise they can have a off flavor


Yeah I prefer younger fish.

Someone mentioned redfish. Try filleting them, but leave the skin and scales on. Season them and throw them on a grill with the scales down. When it's done you can peel the meat off the skin. My wife doesn't like fish, but likes them like that.

I love jug line fishing. It is probably my favorite form of fishing. When I was young we use to do it with my uncle. We would get there early in the am and put out jugs then go bass or crappie fish. Every so often when moving from one spot to the other we would check the jugs. We would also do it in the evening and check them thru the night while crappie fishing under the lights. You could usually tell by the way the jug was sitting or if it had moved a good way from where you dropped it if there was a fish on but not always. We had some that would try to run from the boat. I would lay on my belly on the front of the boat and it was my job to grab the jug. The next guy or the driver would have the net. :D I loved grabbing that jug and feeling a big ole fish on the end.

A family friend had one of those custom aluminum boats where the deck was at water level. It had no sides. We ran jugs in it a couple time and it was fun. You could just flop most of the fish right in the boat.

I like the windshield wiper fluid bottles. They are tough, durable, and have a handle made on already.

Those that haven't tried it just don't know what they're missing.
2 years in Pensacola sure changed my mind on eating a 'nasty ol mullet'..

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

I've been grilling/smoking some catfish lately. It ain't blackened Redfish with cheese grits, but it works in a pinch.


Redfish? Only eat it in a pinch and when your really hungry. Gotcha Fenceman, I was hoping there was a trick to cooking freshwater fish. Speck, white perch, and crappie with bass a close second are my favorite freshwater fish to eat.


Crappie and Walleye are about only freshwater fish I eat.
Deep fry them at about 370-400 in Andy's red or cajun mix.

I grew up on flour and cornmeal and have tried the Louisiana fish fry packets but won't be going back to either after trying Andy's.

I would like to try redfish but you are making it seem to be not so special.

They are good on the halfshell but are a PIA to clean.
