Three on this occasion Leo .That's unusual from my experience! I got a small Brown Bullhead in addition to this White Cat and my nephew got a small Channel Cat or perhaps it was a Brown Bullhead. Here's my lil' Bully:
Looks like even the kitties are active in the freezing temperature. Hunger drives the body.
Bullheads and Catfish through the ice? I have only caught three .Everyone was on a Fathead Minnow . This 17" White Catfish took a Fathead tipped 64th oz. Jig I got him on a light rod Jigging a hole at 12'.
Carl I guess what ever Circle hook size,would compare with a #1 Baitholder hook which is what I've been using.
NOT TERRIBLY FAR FROM ME: NY Record :White Catfish 10 lb. 5 oz. 25.5 Joe Silicato Jig & Cut Bait New Croton Reservoir, Westchester Co. 5/17/98....Twice as big as my largest!
JOHN;; HAVE YO UFOUND ANY CIRCLE HOOKS YET ? WAS WONDERING; ON WHAT SIZE MIGHT BE GOOD FOR KITTIE FISH.... SIZE;; 3 ?? OR MAYBE A SIZE 4 ??
Ok, my bad. I've never actually seen one. Just read about them, and thought they were almost completely white.
I do know that Blue Catfish, in deep and/or muddy water, will often be almost completely white, but when they are in shallow and/or clear water, will darken up to a deep slate blue color.
Unbelievable heads on these guys!
Allen , what part of the Country did you see "almost cmpletely white" White Catfish ? Dick Tabbert from Ohio said the same thing but this fish is a stocker living downthe road here in New Jersey .We all know color varies in regions and different waters .
Allen:Black Bullhead has black Barbels .This one has creamy white Barbels as you can see in the pic..
http://identifyfish.blogspot.com/2010/11/white-catfish-ameiurus-cat... . "Big Head ,Squat Body , White chin Barbels . ,slightly forked Tail. olive gray or slate gray on the head and bluish gray or slate gray on its back and sides, tapering to a white belly."
Here's a smaller 17 " White Catfish I caught in the same spot Yesterday .It grabbed a Hot Dog Chunk:
