This Sunday I am celebrating a local favorite : Catfish. Catfish was once a major Crop and Business in our town With seven active plants off the river. Now that’s all in the pass but if you are lucky you can still catch some in the river. Lisa
What is the best month to fish for catfish
?Late March, April, and early May are some of the best blue catfish fishing of the year for numbers of fish and also offers excellent opportunities for trophy class catfish as well. Channel catfish action is typically excellent and very consistent also.
My favorite recipe: Pam seared Catfish with Lemons
- 2 catfish fillets
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp butter
- 2 tsp dried thyme
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- juice of one lemon
- parsley for garnish
- Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and butter and let it melt.
- Season both sides of the catfish with the salt, pepper, and thyme. Carefully place the fillets into the skillet.
- Let them cook for 2-3 minutes on the first side, then use a large spatula to flip.
- Squeeze the juice from half a lemon onto the fish as it cooks on the second side. Let it cook for another 2-3 minutes.
- Use a spatula to remove the fish from the skillet and onto your serving plates. You can squeeze more lemon juice over the top when serving if you want, and garnish with chopped parsley.

Catfish Benefits :
Catfish is low in calories and packed with lean protein, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. It’s particularly rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fats and vitamin B12. It can be a healthy addition to any meal, though deep frying adds far more calories and fat than dry heat cooking methods like baking or broiling.
With most fish, wild is superior to the farm-raised version. But farming has improved catfish’s flavor–and made it more sustainable
