Do you know a rough or estimated nutrition breakdown for each species? I think that catfish/bullhead would be best from a calorie perspective but I do not anything about this, other than guessing, and observing the meat of some of these fish.

The spine question is intriguing. If a small catfish is better than what ever other species is in the body from a nutrition stand point, then if you caught caught catfish and de-spine, then they are clearly the top choice.

So could the spines of a sub 2 or 1 pound catfish hurt a bass, or hinder it. I do not think it matters, but if they do hurt or hinder, is it reasonable to de-spine catfish you catch, possibly fishing for cats to specifically de spine them? Will this cause anything bad other than a bunch of bass devouring catfish?

I would assume the bass are headshotting these catfish and the spines never "engage" but this is all guessing.
