I prefer channel cats. I like blues as well. I can not stand the taste of farm raised catfish. Moving water catfish are about the only ones I care to eat.
I like all three. The texture os flathead is somewhat different but still good.
the Blue Cat are the best to eat.
if you ask 3 people you will get 3 different answers, i would have to go with a channel cat.
Channel cat. Nice thick filets.... great fried.
Blue Cats, prepared in a little salt,pepper and butter.
I like channel cats the best.
I'm not decided on taste, I think all catfish is delicious. But pound for pound, I'm convinced that channels are the best fighters.
Channel cat. I also like blue cat too. And Shane, I disagree about all catfish being delicious. Try a mud cat and tell me how good it is.
Channel cat, flat head next.
trout,flounder,snapper,cat fish in that order
Channel Cat... I have tried the rest but I just prefer channel cat the best. Has a much cleaner and less fishy taste to me. Tastes great when it is fresh.
Alright, good point. I guess I was only considering the "eaters".
i like blue's because they are a more aggressive catfish and eat more live prey as apposed to eating things dead off the bottom
When I commercial fished; all the old timers I sold fish to wanted Flatheads. I think they are all good.
it all depends on where they are caught its hard to beat a flattie caught in clear running water especially around the rocks blues are really good and so are channels but then again it all depends on size and location a flat caught in really muddy water wont taste as good as the one in the cleaner water
channels are the best in Kentucky
good luck and happy fishing
I eat mostly crappie and bluegills and I bet most people, including me, could not tell the difference if they had a plate of each setting in front of them.
It may just be me but i eat Bullheads cooked in french dressing.
Channel and they are also the sportiest. Will take artificials and fight well.
