For many people, catfish is a favorite dish. It's light, flavorful and versatile - you can enjoy it fried, grilled, boiled or even smoked! With that being said, let's explore the various ways to cook this delicious fish.

Fried Catfish: A Southern classic! For perfectly crispy fried catfish, coat the fish in cornmeal and fry in hot oil until golden brown. This is a great way to bring out its signature flavor while adding a crunchy texture. Serve with your favorite sides such as coleslaw and hush puppies for a truly delicious meal.

Grilled Catfish: Grilling brings out the smoky flavor of catfish and gives it an incredible char-grilled texture. Start by coating the fish with olive oil and your favorite seasonings. Place on a hot grill and cook for about four minutes per side until cooked through. Serve alongside some grilled vegetables and a tangy barbecue sauce for an amazing meal!

Boiled Catfish: Boiling catfish is a great way to keep its delicate flavor intact while adding another layer of flavor. Start by boiling water in a large pot and add in aromatics such as garlic, onions, celery or bay leaves for extra flavor. Add in the catfish fillets and let simmer until they’re cooked through - about 10 minutes or so should do the trick. Serve with butter, fresh herbs and lemon wedges for added zest!

Smoked Catfish: Smoking catfish brings out its natural smokiness and adds a unique flavor. Start by soaking the fish in a brine for about 30 minutes. Then, place on the smoker and cook until it’s cooked through - usually about an hour or so. Serve with your favorite sides such as roasted potatoes and vegetables for an unforgettable meal!

No matter which way you choose to cook catfish, one thing is certain - it's always delicious! From fried to grilled, boiled or smoked, these various cooking methods help bring out the best in this tasty fish. So next time you're craving something light yet flavorful, give one of these recipes a try - you won't be disappointed!

Antique Lures
I have always had an interest in old fishing lures, ever since my Dad gave me an old one and I caught more fish on it than anything else in my tackle box in Nashville.
I found this site, dedicated to antique lures, and I would like to share it with you.

Fresh Fish
Most fishing sites I have seen on the Internet sell tackle, have stories about the whoppers caught and maybe advice on the best lure or bait to use. Visit the Vine today!
This site is unique because, here, you can buy fish 
already caught, cleaned and delivered to your door.
