    I see A lot of blues and Flatheads in the pics " but they are the big cats makes good pics", but I was wondering what is the most popular cat to target and fish for across the good old US, :roll_eyes:
    If you would pic the cat you target the most and lets see what is the US Champ for most popular cat..

    *Will it be the great eating channels??,
    *River flattys,
    *Big blue??
    or something else??
    " if I forget a big one sorry, I will total it myself"

    Puddle:wink:

    I'd have to say the channels are the most popular from the kids to grandpappy age for catching and enjoyment and shear numbers. Far as the blues and flatheads they are fun to target and thats where you get the catch of a lifetime with the big bubba's. They each have their unique place in fishing, and all can be a blast to catch.

    I voted blues,cause they seem to be most places. Channels might be more popular in stocked lakes,I know here the G&F has winter trout/summer cat waters they stock accordingly.

    I would also have to say that the Channel are the most popular Cat because of the same reasons & + any lake in America, that has Catfish in it, - has Channels in them.
    (Just stop and think about that :0a14:)

    I had to go with channels.:wink: Because there are a lot of people that catch channels out there that has never heard of the BOC . They still grab a pole and liver or worms and go cat fishing in pond, creeks,lakes, and rivers. They are everywhere.

    I voted for channel cats. They seem to be the easiest to locate and catch for all anglers across the states.

    The most popular cat in the U.S. will probably be the channel catfish because they are everywhere.

    I like the blues because of the fight and size, them or flatheads, and the channels we like to fill the freezer, the seem to be the the most active, but its really hard to answer that poll because I likem all

    Channels are probably the most popular because of their numbers, but in my opinion the flats and blues are much better eating.

    Well, I voted flathead as being my personal favorite to catch; but channels are more popular with the mainstream mainly because their distribution accross the lower 48 exceeds that of flats and blues.

    Definitely the channel catfish.
    1. They are probably found in about 50 states in the US.
    2. They will eat anything!
    3. Pound-for-pound the hardest fighting of the 3 major catfish species.

    99.9% of us here started out catfishing days with the channels.:cool2:
