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.

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!

Comment by John Sheehan on September 10, 2017 at 7:07am

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 .

Comment by John Sheehan on September 10, 2017 at 7:05am

 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:
