It's hard to beat walleye , but crappie comes close! I've ate more than my fair share of catfish. Grampa was a commercial fisherman, so we never wanted for fresh fish.

i thought we had already solved this one - LOL
dead ones that have been cooked......in all seriousness, i like all cats - i do believe it helps to bleed them (cut off the tail first) and clean them...i have found that fish that don't get cleaned soon seem to have a gamey taste

Walleye, channel cats and bluegill. I've never tried crappie though I'd like to. I'd have to catch ones big enough first, and therein lies my problem LOL.

Walleye is definatly a great fish to eat. Grandpa used to go up to Lake Erie on trips and bring a ton back for a cookout every year. I like Ocean Pearch as well, great for fish frys. That is what they use around here for local fish frys.

Flathead Is by far the best eatin' Because theres a lot of meat on them and all of the meat is white meat. Because all they eat is live bait unlike channels who eat dip bait and all of that other crap off of the bottom. Although channels are my second favorite fish to eat. They are good to as long as you eat the white meat only. They are not quite as good as flatheads though. Just my oppinion

Sturgeon is one of the best tasting fish I have eaten then, in my opinion, a flathead about 2 pounds is hard to beat!..unless it is followed by homemade hushpuppies! :cool:
