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:
That looks like a "Black Bullhead" to me! I thought White Catfish were almost completely white? I've got a book that explains the differences, somewhere..... Hope I didn't loose it in the move up here to MI.
I am now convinced its a White Catfish because of its huge head and White Chin Barbels
I am now wondering if this is a White Catfish NOT a Channel Catfish I have been calling it .
