You are watching: How many pounds of catfish per person


The husband of a lady I work with is providing the fish for a fish fry for 40 adults. Do you have a formula for figuring how much fish to cook? She would appreciate the help!

With sides and fixins this is the general rule to go by for normal people.If you are having a lot of adults, big eaters, I would definately figurequite a bit more.

This is always an easy question for me... All of "em! Of course, I"m a terrible fisherman! I got more friends than fish. I usually buy a big bag of frozen chicken tenders for backup and for those weird people who dont like to eat fish. I fried up a wild turkey breast last time I had a fish fry since I didnt have enough fish, and that went real quick!
Adults - big eaters 12 oz/person (adult men)- small eaters 8 oz/person (children/small women)Served with fries or baked potato, beans, slaw and ice cold tea. :thumb:
I have always went by 3 lbs for every 5 adults and always have left overs. If there are gonna be children there i would say you would have plenty just going 1/2 lb per.
Throw about 40 pounds of crawdaddies and corn in the mix, and you won"t have to have nearly as much fish! :thumb:

1/2 pound!? Ya"ll aint never met my brother in law! Five eight, perhaps 160# soaking wet, NEVER seen anyone eat like he does! I bet he can down three pounds of catfish with trimmings, easy. We go to Rod"s pizza in Hot Springs now and then, he can eat half of their biggest GodFather pizza by himself. FROMAN, when it comes to boiled mudbugs, I consider ten pounds just a snack.

I do too demented. But most people simply can"t hang with men of our stature when it comes to eating crawdaddies. :thumb:
