We fishermen often get obsessed with the marquee species. Largemouth bass, striped bass, and hybrids are all worthy opponents and admirable targets for our attentions. There are however, other fish of significance and they can be found all over Georgia. There are three major types of catfish that can be caught throughout the state in trophy proportions, in great numbers, and with relative ease. Channel cats, blue cats and flathead cats are prevalent all over our state and with a little preparation and effort you can put them in your frying pan or hang them on your wall.
