    I'd have to say Blues. That's what I target most of the time.

    Flatheads, any fish that will choke itself to death trying to swallow bait is #1 for me

    Hard question! Haven't caught a blue yet, but I mainly target Channels. So I'll go with the Channel Cat for right now. Heck! I like them all. Luv to catch those flatheads too, but my PB is only 17 lbs. at the present time!!

    Big old gooduns of any species are okay with me but you got to love the way the big blues hit the bait sometimes.

    I have to say flatheads.I dont eat alot of fish.but I love to fish and flatheads make you think and plan on how to catch them.The size and fight to me is better the any other fresh water fish.

    I have to admitt I catch more channels then anything else but Flattey's are my favorite fer sure....You cant beat the fight and brute force of a ticked off flatthead when he figures out he's caught and dont wanna come in-woo wee what a rush!

    For catching, its got to be the flathead. Great fighters. For eating, bullhead, wrapped in foil with butter, salt and pepper, and baked is hard to beat.
