In a large pot or deep fat fryer, preheat peanut oil to around 350 degrees F.
Rinse the fillets under cold water and pat dry with paper towels. In a 13 X 9 inch baking dish lay in catfish fillets and pour milk over the top, let soak for about a half hour or so in the refrigerator.
In second 13 X 9 inch baking dish, combine cornmeal, salt, lemon pepper,lemonade crystals and cayenne pepper.
Remove the catfish fillets from the milk and coat in the cornmeal mixture evenly. Set aside on a large platter to dry.
Place around 5 pieces of catfish at a time in the hot oil to fry. Fry around 6 minutes per side or until the catfish fillets are a golden brown and the fish flesh flakes with a fork.
Fried catfish should be stiff when fully cooked not limpy after frying. Drain pieces on paper towel, and add additional salt and pepper while fish is still hot from frying.
