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.
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.
