    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.

    Whatever takes the line, catching anything is fun. Well, except maybe snags.

    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.
