Catfish are eaters. That is why they get so big which is why they are so fun to catch. Both channels and flatheads love to chew, but they both have different palates. Let’s break it down.

Channel Catfish- Channels will eat anything, literally anything. They will eat worms, minnows, crayfish, hot dogs, shrimp, stinkbait, cheese, and any kind of rotten food. Stinkbait is widely available, and is usually applied to a dip worm (shown below)






Flathead Catfish- While channels will eat a variety of things, flatheads are different. Flatheads like baitfish, either whole or cut. Examples of good flathead bait includes bluegills, sunfish, sheepshead, shiners, gizzard shad, suckers, bullheads, and sculpins.
