Cook bacon over medium-low heat in a heavy Dutch oven or stock pot until fat is rendered.

Add 2 tablespoons of butter and the onion; cook until transparent. Add okra, tomatoes, garlic and lemon.

Bring to a boil; add boiling water, salt, Tabasco sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Lower heat and simmer, partially covered, for 1 hour.

Blend remaining butter with the flour; add to the simmering stew a little at a time, stirring constantly. When thickened, stir in catfish. Heat to boiling.
