    What is the best eating catfish you guys like? Choose between Blue, Flathead, Channel, White, and Bullhead.

    Have to say my favorite Catfish would be Flatheads.

    Flathead, butnot by much. I really think there is not that much difference between the white meat among the 3 if they are from the same waters. I have noticed a taste difference from pond, river, lake fish though.

    I Think The Little Bullheads Are The Best, In this Area Flatheads Are Scarce, So I Release All Of Them. I Did Catch A Couple Of Channels Awhile Ago, About 3LB Each, They Were Delicious, Elliot

    Chanels are some good eatin for me!! I think they are more abundant here so dont mind taking a couple eaters home.

    Flatheads get too big, I want to save them for a big catch later!!

    I love just about any kind of fish but would have to go with the Blue as my favorite.

    Flatheads are definitely the best, but I rarely ever keep on. Channels would be my 2nd favorite and I eat a lot of them.

    Would have to be blues for me, I can taste them now. All golden brown with some tarter sauce and some hush puppies on the side with malt vinegar, cole slaw too. I'm getting hungry, gotta go.
