Mustard and beer for the marinade before breading. Something like 1 cup yellow mustard to 2 cans of beer. Let fish sit in marinade a few minutes. Shake off excess and coat with preferred breading. I prefer a seasoned corn meal and corn flour mixture. Fish taste better and cooks quicker when cut into 3-4 inch strips too.

Mustard doesn't if they are coated well. I don't think flour or cornflour mixtures are as crunchy crispy as cornmeal. One sort of exception is "cream meal" which is a fine cornmeal, I believe. It's what Uglesich's used on their fried seafoods. The only place I've found it is through Louisiana Fish Fry, but they sell it in 25 lb bags or they did.
