 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

Comment by John Sheehan on September 9, 2017 at 9:09am

I am now wondering if this is a White Catfish NOT a Channel Catfish I have been calling it .

Comment by John Sheehan on September 9, 2017 at 5:58am

I 've been missing a lot of fish but found that when using hot  dog pieces for BHeads and Ccats the white perch are pecking away at the bait and tearing off the hook .

Weird to say the 1st Channel Cat I ever caught was still my biggest ! An incidental catch of 30" 12#. Way back in the 70's at Pompton Lakes from shore on a measley worm i dug up from the bank  where i was fishing . The catch was late morning hours I believe .
