How do you guys cook your Sandies?  For the first time in decades I kept a few sandies last week.  Took them straight home, fillet them, cleaned them, and threw them in some foil with butter and galic salt.  They all tasted very fishy.  I know, fish tasting fishy  icon_rolleyes .  

Maybe I should have battered and fried.  Also sliced my finger open on a gill plate.  The whole experience reminded me why I usually just release them.

they have a blood line and that is where they get the fishy taste. cut it out and soak them in butter milk for an hour and they taste alot better then.

When I cook sandies which is not often, I use the buttermilk method but I let them soak overnight. If you don't have buttermilk like most of us don't, regular milk and lemon juice will make buttermilk. About one tablespoon of lemon juice to one cup of milk. Let em soak and they usually come out snow white. Then cook em how ever you like I fry em.

I soak mine in a clear carbonated beverage like sprite or beer.  Soak 4-24 hours.

If I am gonna cook immediately, I just:

1)  Fillet the fish
2)  Rinse with water and pat dry
3)  Dip in milk.
4)  Coat with a 50/50 flour and Cornmeal
5)  Salt & Pepper
6)  Fry

Quick and easy, and the kid's love it!  Me to by the way.  If not cooked immediately, like everyone else said, definitely soak over night in salt water.  You don't have to be bashful with the salt either.

Think I'd use the sprite, sure wouldn't want to waste a beer!  Sad   Unless you drink it afterwards that is.....Yuck!  icon_idea

If you blacken them, leave the skin on.  They are a bit flaky otherwise.  Catfish are great blackened.
