What kind of batter do you guys use? I was down in Rappahonick river down in VA this weekend and caught bunch of croakers and greenback perch. Used this seafood batter called "something" Autry, it was delicious.

Also, do you guys prefer regular or electronic fillet knife?

I usually use Zatarans Fish Fri. Little spice to it, fries up real nice. I haven't used an electric knife, but I could see where it would come in real handy cleaning a mess of croaker.

Usually just use a combo of seasoned flour and cracker crumbs(saltines put in the food processor).......for shrimp or small filets, will also add some bread crumbs for quicker browning.

Also hard to beat "beer batter" (one cup beer, one cup self rising flour, let sit for 2 hours, dip and deep fry)

Electric fillet knives, will work, don't like them.....:D

House Autry is great!

My favorite is to finely crush a hand full of pretzels in a blender along with a bit of flour, Old Bay and a bit of black pepper.

Dip fish in a beaten egg and coat with pretzel mix.

Potato chips can be subbed for pretzels for something a bit different.

Try it. You'll like it. :)

I use Shorelunch Mix

I got it at Gander Mountain and haven't stopped using it. It's rather inexpensive. The last time I bought some, I got a twin pack with a Repala lure with it and it only cost 3.95. Some people don't like the italian blend of theirs. Well thats my 2 cents.

Zaterans,Cracker meal,Cajun seasoning,and Wye River seasoning is what I like to use.I also tried some Caribbean Jerk seasoning on grilled fish and that was great.Maybe I'll try Curry seasoning on those fish?
