Catfish Restaurant and Fresh Fish Market Southern Georgia off I-75 (Need Help Locating It)

A few years ago while traveling north on I-75 from Florida, we exited I-75 in southern Georgia and happened upon the cutest little town.  We asked at the hotel for a seafood/catfish restaurant recommendation and they recommended a little restaurant in the downtown area.  At the restaurant they served a heaping portion of very tiny fried catfish (about 3"-4" long).  At the back of this restaurant was a fresh fish market where the locals came in and bought their fresh fish (no other groceries were available).  I can't remember the name of the town or the restaurant and we will be making another trip to southern Georgia in the Spring and would like to go there again.  If this restaurant/town sounds familiar would love to hear from you.  My husband thinks it was just a few miles north of the Florida border; however, it could be as many as 30-40 miles.  
 
Thanks for any information you could provide.

    It would help if you give the name of the town or exist number.
    Valdosta, Hahira or Aldel   .... oh & Cecil  .. I'm sure there would be a catfish restaurant in each that will satisfy you.

    I know, wish we knew the name of the town or exit number as well.  That would solve the puzzle.  Am sure there are lots of great catfish restaurants,  but have never eaten catfish that tiny (you literally eat the entire body, bones and all).  Is that common in restaurants in South Georgia - to serve tiny catfish like that?  Just thinking of them makes me hungry!!

    All I can suggest is to go on Google; type in seafood restaurants in south Georgia. Google will map out restaurants in alphabetical order. If you put your cursor on the particular letter -it will give you a street view of the establishment. They came up with quite a few in the southern Atlanta area- along with Atlanta itself. Or if it is really bothering you can do the same thing with the entire map of georgia- starting with the southern most region of course.
