Catfish vary in diet byCatfish vary in diet by species. Mud cats and flatheads feed on bottom and eat stinky baits. Channel cats along with Blue cats are predators and eat largely minnows (shad)perch, bass, stripped bass etc. I was watching my poles when a blue surfaced and swallowed a coot!! A week later I caught a 48 lbs blue. He could swallow a whole apple. The one that swallowed the coot had to be 80 or 90 + lbs. There are some big catfish out there!! Search for a fish producing lake then watch the OLD fishermen.
