I concur 100% with the response that snapperking gave. But........I have found that the cats below Guntersville Dam seem to taste a little better than the ones from the lake. Also, smaller blues are excellent to eat. I do not keep any channel cats period! Mainly for the reason that snapperking mentioned. The Flatheads/"Yeller" cats are always a treat but again, I like to keep them around 5 pounds. 2 weeks ago I caught a few Blues 19, 20, and 40 pounds. That's the reason I keep a disposable instamatic camera in the boat. Took all their pictures and released them. Kept one Blue around 5 pounds to eat. I met a guy at the boat landing parking lot who had a 61 pounder in the back of his truck. I guess they are fun to show your friends but trust me, they are not good to eat. If he would have released it, it might have been 75 pounds next year. Good luck to ya! Russ
