I guess flatheads have much larger mouths, but what about channel cats? Are they known to eat largemouths?

Big Indiana Bass


Channel cats feed on fish too, though not quite to the extent that flatheads do. I've seen some documented cases of channels eating bass, but it seems more incidental and the bass are usually fingerling size. Flatheads have been documented to eat largemouth up to 3 pounds and do so enough to where I actually expect to see bass as a listed component of their diet in studies. It's something I'm going to research more through the winter though.


I believe there are some documented cases where Flatheads have caused some serious damage to Largemouth Fisheries in the Carolina's.
