I did some catfish on my cast iron pizza pan. Oak charcoal with a touch of apple wood. Got the iron heated to about 400° with some olive oil. Catfish seasoned with a little Cajun seasoning. It was very good!

i have a nice cast iron pots n pans collection, too. mostly came from a scoutmaster neighbor who used in boy scouts camp outings. and accumulated the cast iron collection over many years. small fry pans, to pots to larger dutch ovens. all cast iron. he passed on. one day riding my bike, passing by... i saw his kids loading it all up in truck. storage? well, i'll ask. no, going to dump with it. i expressed an interest. sure, he said, u can have it all. i had to get my big wheel barrow to get it all home. 2 loads. don't use it all, but sure do like it all.Svk's enthusiasm dragged me into this, along with a renewed interest in cooking. Used cast iron many years ago when working at a camp. Passed up many pieces at garage / estate sales since then. Ordered a Lodge 10" and griddle off that place named after a river to get started. Then, visited 3, different Goodwill stores over the past few days, figuring that buying some would cause others to appear. Some surprisingly good cookware available, if you don't need a matched set, but no cast iron. Yet.
I'm not into catfish. Too strong fishy flavor for me. Besides, every time I tried to fry them they seemed mushy inside and I have a thing about under cooked meat. No sushi for me; if it's raw, it's bait. The fishiest fish I eat is white bass. Some remove the red view, but I don't mind.nice platter full! i was at grocery, crusied the meats and fish dept... catfish fillets were $6.95 and 5.95/#.... you catch those?
me, too! i am not into any fish that tastes fishie - . but, i have to say... in general, fresh catfish is more of a sweet meated fish. not quite as sweet as fresh crappie, but tasty. and very popular down here. i have several tanks (cattle drinking ponds) up on my ranch. one is close to 3 acres... that is my bass tank. another i have a few south 40's over on the other side... is my catfish tank. toss out catfish food and water boils....I'm not into catfish.

Maybe some people don’t clean / prep their cast iron properly before applying; use too thick of a layer; don’t let it polymerize correctly, etc.i read that article and have used it just like she said and it works great . . . my pans that only have the organic flax oil have never flaked off
