    Default Catfish prices.......let's compare

    I was at Sam's last night for some miscellaneous bulk items. I mosied on over to the fish section for a peek. I found myself looking at 4 fillets from a pair of 4#ish cats.

    2.08# @ $9.32........ = $4.48 per pound......sheesh

    Anyone else care to post the prices from their areas?

    My step father bought some earlier this month and said they were over $3 lb. Saturday he told me they are on sale now for $1.99 lb.

    I sell fillets for $4.99/lb for the farm raised USA bulk, and $3.99/lb for the 16 oz. IQF package. Nuggets are $2.19, and whole fish are $3.49.

    Mee too! I don't buy catfish! It's outrageous. I noticed we will have some on sale next week for $3.99. That farm fish doesn't taste any good anyways. BUT...I have spent $100 for gas, food, and soda for a fishing trip and only caught 3 fish. You do the math. I think on average, I spend more than $3.99/lb of catfish. Probably a testament to my fishing ability, but it's true.

    In certain stores , $2 to 4 a pound.
    I'd prefer to pay nothing and catch them myself.

    3.99 is about standard here. I looked at a big grocery a few days ago. They had some really pretty fried fillets in the deli so I thought supper. I asked the clerk what the price was. 9.99 per pound. Made my balogna sandwich taste better.
