    :confused: How do you gauge how many pounds of fish you need per person to have a fish fry?


    I've had a few, but it always seems like we thaw out WAAAAY more than what we end up needing.


    And if I weigh out my bags frozen that have had the water squeezed out of them, that should give me a rough idea of what the meat is going to weigh when its thawed, right? :confused:

    You can never have too much fish for a fry. We always fry up a ton, and whatever isn't eaten is lunch for the next few days.

    We usually figure about a gallon of fish for 8-10 people, but that is with all the fixin's too. Like pork n beans, cheesy potatoes, homemade rolls, salad and don't forget the desserts. Man, getting hungry now.
    I'd rather have too much than not enough. Just my .02

    "Typically it’s between 1/4 pound and 1/3 pound, but it’s 1/2 pound if you’re feeding the football team."

    :cheers: Thanks everyone for the responses!

    I need to start weighing bags and see where I'm at. :cheers: I think I've got at least 5 pounds of meat that's ready to be fried. :stirpot: (And I saw a buck last fall that will go at least 110 too).
