    Ken, all three, but you have to consider who's doing the cooking. I have seen the best fish of all three desecrated by a bad cook.

    Flatties are the bomb. Not much meat on a 5 pounder, but still yummy. Blue comes in second. I'll give the channels to the disabled guy down the road.

    My favorite catfish is flathead always clean meat and more meat on them than the other cats. I personally like striper more than any catfish though. I only add them because here you can catch them side by side.

    All three for me but I like channel the best. Mostly cause channels is what I fish for most of the time. Plus we have a lot of catfish resturants. They serve channel. HmmmmmmH mmmmmmmm good with all the fixin's

    Some people I know will mix up a channel with a mud cat.
    What I call a mud cat is usually in ponds. They very dark in color, meat dont taste right to me.

    Then there are Bream, and crappie. Both good eating fish but I love crappie the best of the 2.
    I dont really eat many of the bass family.

    We don't have much of a blue cat fishery in AZ but we have alot of channel and flat. Flat takes the cake for me by far the meat is simular to stergion and halibut being very dense and mild in taste. One of the best freshwater fish to catch and eat, each fillet makes a fantastic meal and conversation with the family.:wink:

    Well Ken, I voted for blues.....although I would eat all three. Flatheads would be second for me, and I'm not crazy about channels. All of 'em are fine to eat imo though, if filleted/prepped/cooked correctly as you guys mentioned.

    What I do find interesting is that over the last couple years (in previous polls such as this one), I've noticed quite a few NC members say they prefer blues.
