Surely you jest or you are passing on information that someone who doesn't know what they are talking about stated. Blue cat are probably the most efficient of all predator fish. But I'd expect such from a bass fisherman.

I probably just don't know what I'm talking about. Every once in a blue moon I'll catch a blue or a channel cat on a bass lure but most often it is a Flathead. Most catfish pursuers will say a flathead is the best eating and from this I based my opinion. Am I 100% wrong?

Time of year and water quality have a lot to do with how any fish taste but especially catfish, you catch a big flathead out of some of our local lakes here when she's actively spawning and you want even want it in the Boat but you catch that same fish out of clean water in late fall or winter it will taste completely different and knowing how to bleed and clean a big flathead or Blue makes a lot of difference
use to catch Flatheads in the 30 to 50 lb range from a swift clear water river where I grow up, my taught me how to bleed those big fish and that was the whitest, cleanest tasting fish I've ever tasted

Lot of fancy and insightful comments on this thread in regards to catfish meat. Idk bout all that but I will say that I've cleaned and eaten quite a few catfish in my life. Flatheads have always been the best, bar none. From 18" to 60 pounds. It's not like filleting a Blue or Channel. More like field dressing. Belly and cheek meat end up on my plate.
