He tried an oyster at the buffet and liked it, so he caught/fished quite a few more of them onto his plate.

1) Can I use both "caught" and "fished" here to mean "grabbed"?

2) Does adding "quiet" to "a few" equal "several/a lot"?

The given sentence should be something like the following:


"He tried an oyster at the buffet and liked it, so he fished quite a few more onto his plate." ("Caught" cannot be used here. The words "of them" are understood from the context and should be omitted.)

The phrase "quite a few" is idiomatic and means "a good many/number" or "more than a few."
