This but I use canola oil because of peanut allergies. I might start the oil as high as 370. It's better to let the breaded fish set up for awhile before frying.

Corn meal with lemon pepper, 350 for 7 minutes. I cook fish at least once a week. I use vegetable oil because it's cheaper. I strain it twice and can use it three times before I have to throw it away.

For catfish:

Soak in buttermilk,then salt,and add a good shake of Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning for each side. Mix 1 and 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal, 1/2 cup self-rising flour with an extra 1/2 teaspoon or so of salt mixed into cornmeal mix.
Heat oil corn or peanut oil to about 375, add fish without over-crowding. Turn once after fish starts floating until lightly brown.
Hold in hot oven (275) on paper towels until ready to serve.

For bass or crappie, replace buttermilk with brushed on mustard.

Whatever oil is handy. I like to add some pancake mix to my batter, keeps it a little sweet, about a 50/50 mix. My fish fryer tells me when the oil is ready, but I think it's around 375. Cook it till it floats

Canola oil at 375

Batter using zatarans crispy southern with lemon and a sprinkle of tony's

Fry till crisp and golden brown. I pick the basket up and poke it with my finger. If your going to cook by a time I hope all the pieces are the same size and thickness.

Deep fry catfish filets in peanut oil. Heat the oil gradually to 390. If you heat it too quickly (on high) it will scorch the oil and give a bad flavor to the fish. When you add the fish, the oil will bubble and you'll lose your heat. Turn up the heat so the oil can recover and hold at 360 while frying for 9 minutes.

Do yourself a favor and buy a package of frozen breaded okra and put it in there after you've done your fries.

Also, fry your fries twice if you have a big crowd. The normal basket will hold 2 pounds of fries. It will hold 4 pounds that has been precooked, and they will come out crispier.

Same here except maybe use Louisiana Fish Fry instead of corn meal.

I use either a packaged fry like La Brand, or a mix of 1 flour to 3 cornmeal, S&P to taste, maybe a dash of ceyenne. 375 oil until it floats, then just a few more seconds to crisp up the crust. On a side note, we fried "eating sized" catfish, about 11" body and tail, whole when I was a kid. First the fish would float, but you had to wait until it turned itself over before it was done.
