I used to love going to Opas farm and fishing from some of his larger ponds and having from catfish for dinner. I can't remember the last time that I have had fresh since the 70s. Thanks for that , Opa Oscar. I got him really upset when he came to Weiser and was fishing in the Snake River for trout and 2 or 3 year old me kept trying to skip rocks.

If you like catfish and you're ever in the Chicago area you need to go to JJ Fish & Chicken and get the catfish nuggets. The *bomb*. They are so addicting me and my ex used to call them fish crack.

I have never lived in the south and have no known relations from there. I friggin love grits. I have to make my own, which is as one ought to anyhow, but it's a rare find on any restaurant menu around here.

Some hoity toities like to refrigerate theirs overnight then sell it as polenta though. Sneaky hobbits.

Don't discount those refrigerated leftover grits. Press 'em kinda flat while they're still warm, then when you come back to them the next day, cut them into squares or patties or whatever and fry them up in bacon grease. Or with sausage. Or chorizo. Etc.

You don't even have to call it polenta; fried grits is plenty descriptive :)

Grew up in NW AR and remember going to this place a bunch of times.

Good food but was pretty much all fried back in the day.
Spent most of my life in California and I haven't seen frog legs at a restaurant in decades

Also remember telling my younger brother that catfish whiskers would totally sting you

There are several JJs Fish & Chicken in the Sacramento / Bay Area.... And yes they are excellent.

And turns out they're related!

There used to be a place in KC called "Stroud's". I went there once in the early 70's. It was a crappy looking place under a viaduct with wooden floors, red-checked tablecloths, and a woman playing a piano. It was like walking into the 1930's. I remember there was a big line to get in. Fried chicken was their thing, but they also had fried catfish. My parents took me; I was maybe 10 or so. I got the catfish, and wow, was it good! It was the whole fish, fins and all. The fins were like potato chips.

They sold t-shirts that read "We choke our own chickens." I wanted one, but my mom wouldn't get one for me. When I finally learned what that phrase meant, I can understand why.

Anyway, it was real good, and I've never forgotten it. After a little research, I see they're still in business, but in Overland Park now. I wonder if it's as good? If I ever get back there, I'll check it out.

I can't even eat fish or shellfish, but I do fish hard. Gloves and epi pen are a must

Never got the catfish love. For a fried north American fish gimme pike or bass or crappie. It's not that's its bad.. its just there's better options to fish for. I'll take a few hours on a boat in late fall weather fishing for crappie and catching dozens of em vs bobber fishing for the mud fish.

I dunno why but I really like fried pike. And if we ain't frying I'm eyeballing trout.

I love Cajun cooking. But if the fish is catfish I'm just passing on it.
