    I grew up fishing for bass and catfish till moving to Idaho thirty years ago. Most of the people up here act like channel cat are a trash fish and can’t believe I like to eat them. My son is a fly fishing guide in eastern Idaho so I get lots of time in a drift boat. I’ll fish for about anything but do like fly fishing. We have good small mouth fishing here. I really like fishing for brown trout but don’t like eating trout of any kind.

    We used to catfish more. Hardly ever do it anymore, and when I do, it’s throwing out poles and coming back later hoping all of them are still there. Don’t usually catch many. Good catfishing here happens when I’m chasing turkey. This used to be a morning of catfishing, in my younger days.

    I have no doubt most catfisherman could fry up some nuggets that would taste amazing but I've never liked any catfish I've ever caught and cooked....texture was either chewy or mushy.

    ...And I never needed to bother with an ample supply of walleye, perch, bluegill, and crappie around that needed no extra steps to make delicious and are all a helluva lot more fun to catch.

    Largemouth bass. In February I’ll start pitching a green pumpkin tube with a couple of earplugs shoved in it to keep it off the bottom while it’s Carolina rigged. Get ready and hang on.

    I can’t remember...is it the Blue or Channel cat that will hit a lure?

    Fiddlers are good.... but flathead is by far the best eating fish, period.
    Crappie and walleye are very good, but good ol’ belly fillet of the flathead is top notch.

    I’ve caught blues on crappie jigs.
