question to all members: which type of catfish is the most fun to catch blue or flatheads
When them blues are feeding it's hard to beat. Having days where your hooked up and slamming them putting 30 to 40 blues in the boat 30 to 60# is just fun. You just hang on and enjoy the ride while it last.
But hooking up with that big flatty I think would be just as fun. Might be hard to pick one.
I gotta say Flatheads. Wish we had Blues. Hoping to catch a few on my Ohio River trips this year.
Flatheads hand down much better fighting fish.
Thats a tough one they both have a unique way of fighting that make them both a good fight so id say thats to close to call for me.
IT has been a bad winter for me I would not care, big blue or flathead I like them both . but I like blues better I catch more of them.
i never had a fight with a flat head yet that i know of......their hear on our lake seems ...we may have a good tread hear !!!!!!:roll_eyes:
Whatever takes the line, catching anything is fun. Well, except maybe snags.
Both I try to fish areas that have both.
Flathead might fight a little harder but I cant catch the number of flattys I can blues, Blues any day for me..:wink:
I would say Blue. Flatheads are not uncommon in my area but I catch
blues at least 10 to 1 over flatheads and I try to fish what I would think
is flathead habitat.
In my opinion, flatheads are more fun and fight harder. Ive caught a few 20 pound flats that I would of swore would be 40 pounders before coming to the surface. JMO
I know that big blues can really strip some line off the reel when they go on a run, and they are by far the more powerful of the two, but the flatty's taste better.
I like both blues and shovelheads the best. They are both big and mean!
A 20lb channel would own a 20lb flat anyday! 20lb blue would be the weakest of the 3.
flatheads for me they rock hard especially in the low dams I fish they fight hard
Im going to say flatties But I also like a fight with blues also. hell If it bites Im for It!!!:tounge_out:oooh:
I think flats but i dont fish for blues.Flats are good eating and fighting fish.
blues of course sir :wink:
