Looks like even the kitties are active in the freezing temperature. Hunger drives the body.

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.
