Sorry to hear that Gaff. Did you get a whole or a half order. They do both. Actually funny I have eaten there before and finished before my wife and the waitress actually just brought more fish out for me without saying anything. Hopefully things aren't changing there. I was very concerned when Chet died ( aside from missing his great personality) but that has been years ago and nothing seemed to change. They actually changed the french fries one time and when I made a passing comment on it the waitress told me so many people had complained they were changing back . Hope its not the beggining of "Change at Chets".

Meant to ask about this:

Anyone fry with cotton seed oil? I haven't tried it yet, I usually use Peanut oil like most of you. A friend that lives out of town said he tried it for cooking fish and loved it. Said it didn't leave any taste compared to Peanut or other oils.

I did some research and according to the website (Take this for what it's worth, it IS the internet after all so of course everything is true )

Cotton seed oil is purer, cleaner and usually more refined and distilled

Supposed to be lower in saturated fats

Maintains temp better and scorches at a higher temp than Peanut oil

Now here is the part I wonder about and not sure I trust:

Doesn't retain the flavor of previous cooked foods and can be stored after cooking fish then reused later without getting rancid.

I haven't priced it but my buddy said that in his area Cotton seed and Peanut Oil were extremely close in cost. I don't know about around here but plan on checking it out.

Baited it with little bitty piece of red wiggler and pulled about 10 mullet in in about 15 minutes. He actually never touched them he just picked up the pole and set them on the bank. I don't even think he had to change the worm or at least I didn't see him. I maybe wrong but I think he had done that before!
You can definitely catch them just like you're describing. We do it on the alabama river and use dog food instead of rabbit. Sometime's you'll tear em up. I went with my grandfather and uncle last summer and we caught enough to fill 2 54 qt ice boxes and a 5 gallon bucket in 3-4 hours.

I actually just fried some fish in cottonseed oil last week. It was delicious!! Slightly cheaper than peanut oil, but I couldn't find it at the store today, so I paid $15 for a gallon of peanut oil. Cottonseed oil was $10 for a gallon. I think I reused the oil at least 3 or 4 times and never really strained it properly and it got a little fishy on the last batch.

Definitely recommend trying it.

Thank you, I appreciate the info. I'll give it a try.

I had the half order which is actually 2/3 order. The waitress said half order has 4 where the full has 6 pieces. Even with the full order, the filets would have been the same size. I suppose I was expecting catfish size filets like at Dave's catfish house in Milton. You get stuffed at that place and have left overs. Mmmmmm, I love some fresh fried catfish.
