    i think the best looking cats are the black bullheads, and then the yellow bullheads.

    Hey Anthony,
    Welcome and you are right about the bullheads being good looking and to me some of the best eating to boot. Just don't hear a lot about them but there is a lot of them in our local farm ponds along with channels so the grandkids and myself do a lot of fishing for them.

    I love Bullheads, but they are hard to fine, unless u are fishing ponds or waterholes.

    I like to noodle for bullheads in the shoals of the river. You can catch a pile that way.

    I think that channel cats are the best looking. I wouldn't snub my nose at a bullhead though.

    I agree that channel cats are the best looking of the group. Some have blue eyes, and the slate color of their skin just can't be beat. I don't think the bullhead can match that!:tounge_out:

    Now, when it comes to eating, that is a toss up.

    I think they are all much better looking than a bass, but I think a smaller blue can look pretty good

    Im right behind ya on that one I think the little yellow bullheads are the coolest. Nothing like sittin down with a good hand picked can of nightcrawlers and catching bullheads all day long

    Bullheads do have a bit of cuteness to them, but it's hard to beat a big, bronze female channel cat as far as looks go. JMHO.

    they are considered a pest where i am from. I have eaten them and they are good but have a muddier taste than channels.

    I would have to say young channels are the best looking. but then again flaheads have there own ugly type of beauty. I think they are all awsome looking in there own way. but I personally like the young channels with the spots on them and like to bark at you to put em back in the water. how can you not put them back??? lol

    I agree. I have a bullhead in my aquarium that my boy named "six and a half" He is cool to watch, especially when he eats. My boy will drop a few crawlers in there for him every day and man he tears them up.
