    I try to target catfish but every once in awhile one of those big perch aka Bass will eat my live bream.

    Im a catfisherman but, I like to catch a big bass everyonce in a while. I read a study once about bass fisherman and cat fisherman and how catfisherman were more loyal and solitary fisherman then bass fisherman and they would go to greater extents to catch catfish it was interesting and then it had the pluses for bass fishermna to but it was pretty dead on I felt.

    I've been bass fishing in 3 ponds on the farm the last 2 nights.
    It's a tough month to fish in our calender year, but I love the challenge.
    The fish hold deep and you have to use a slow presentation.
    It's more of mental game then anything else.
    Some folks like the mental challenge bassing provides while others like the kick back approach to catting.
    I like both. I have my lazy days and I have other days I just want to fan cast a point for a big chub.

    Funny, the serious catfishermen I know that catch the big cats never use bass as bait. It would be way way down on the list of the bait of choice.
    Some places it would even be illegal to use a bass as bait.

    The best fish is one stupid enough to take my bait and big enough to fill the fryer.

    Catfish taste the best, bass not so good as food as fun to me though

    bass is too general, need to be more detailed :big_smile: . Black bass vs catfish, id go catfishing every time.

    Striped bass, sandbass and hybrids, deserve some fishing time though.

    Bass is my favorite eating fish and the really big ones have meat that flakes.

    Catfish is King for catching. Heck anybody can drag a worm around and catch a bass.

    When I fish it is usually for catfish or crappie or bream for bait. But when the wife goes we fish forwhatever bites. Earlier this year while crappie fishing she caught one of those green carp [bass] that wieghed 4#. She was happy, so I was happy. grizzly
