    Default Best tasting catfish?

    What is the best tasting catfish to you? Flathead, blue, or channel? What is the best tasting size to eat? Or do you believe they all taste the same?

    Flathead under 10 pounds is great.

    Channel under 5 is also really good.

    Blue couldn't pay me to eat them in any size.

    Default YUMMY

    A flathead under 15 pounds and under
    A channel cat has to be under 10 pounds, usually smaller the better
    And Blue has to be under 15 pounds and thats pushing it.

    Flathead being the best bar none.

    I guess it's up to the person doing the eating... I got nothing against anyone keeping the largest fish they caught!!!!! Look at it this way what do you like more ribeye steak or veal come's from the same aniamil just one taste better than the other :smile2:Oh yea lmao veal is a little smaller!!!

    I'm partial to flatties 8 and under with channels in the five and under range running a close second. Fry some taters and onions with either and you've got a meal:big_smile::wink: Stay safe and stick a pig!!!:wink:

    I find flats around the 4-8 pounds are great. The fillets are not too think and don't need to be filleted twice. Channels in the 4-5 pound range are my keepers. And blues around 5-8 pounds, but they have to be sliced thin. I also only add alittle dry mix to my catfish as I don't like a thick batter. I want to taste the fish not the batter. Good luck out there

    The best to me is a 10 lb flathead for a good courtboullion(cajun dish)..Because the flathead eats primarily live bait it tends to make the meat sweeter and less oily tasting..A good 10 lb fish makes a perfect size pot for the family + leftovers..As far as fried I like under 5 lb channels..

    Flatties too in my opinion, but that don't ammount to much sometimes at least my kids don't think so.:wink:
