    The stock answer is Cajun seasoning in a frying pan...but I found a Club House mix called "Lemon and Herbs" in the spice isle that really works great with on Catfish.

    The recipe is on the label (pull back) ...

    Do you have any recommendations to size? Like how big is the biggest to cook? I like bass but I find that anything over like 3.5 pounds gets a bit too fishy, I haven't tried catfish but heard its good so I want my first experience to be a good one lol

    This time of the year you won't find fresh Catfish, so what you'll get are fillets at the fish counter in the grocery store. Most places offer pre-seasoned Cajun fillets (1-2 per person/meal)...just pan fry them.

    The fresh spring Catfish won't range much over a pound...if that...it's normally a small fish...takes 3-5 to make a meal.

    I made a thread a few months back about this vary thing. I can find the thread and post the link if you like. I also think there are a few others around on this vary thing. Been a while since I've been able to get out for cat fish ( or any fish ). But you probably wont catch any around this time a year. But when I was out last time for them I was keeping the bigger ones like MikePal said the don't get big and take a lot to feed you. They are vary tasty and super fun to catch

    I'm surprised that a guy who's name is 'fishingismylife' and who lives that close to Dunnville and the Grand River hasn't been catfishing....some of the best in the province out that way.

    I quess I should mention, being as your out that way, you have access to some great Channel Cats fishing, which can easily hit the 20lb mark.....I tend to think in terms of eastern Ont were Channel Cats aren't common..we only get small Catfish here

    I do fish the grand river a lot but there is no way I'm eating anything out of that river, I just catch and release at the grand, always a good time, I have never actually set out to fish specifically for catfish, I have caught some but most are real small and not worth keeping..I have always heard that dunville has great catfish but haven't made it out there yet, most of my free time is spent hunting and shooting now.
