Black and gold / blue flake 4" senko.. helluva surprise and an even better fight. 

 

Pretty good size for a channel cat. Big ol head on her.

 That looks like a blue cat to me

I think some call it a bull head

I'm pretty sure it's a channel. They get dark in color. 

 

Here is someone else's channel catfish I found as soon as I googled black channel cat. It's not a blue. Look at the anal fin. 

 

85 % sure it's a channel. 

 

@Bunnielab it's a Berkley cherrywood 6 foot MH. Perfect for bank fishing . And only 25 bucks. For the money it's above and beyond

I was going to say bull heads  usually channels have white bellies with speckals. the bullheads we use to catch were usually black in color. but I am no expert. bet it was a fun fight tho!

It's belly was all white... The owner of the pond told me his brother stocked channels in there.. so I just assumed. It's not a blue or a flathead that's for sure.

Thanks! It looks like they have a M/F one at 5'6".  That might make a good "allways in the car" rod.

That's a big male channel. They turn nearly black and their heads swell up during spawning time. Channels only have spots as juveniles, they disappear once they become adults. Blues anal fins are very straight and unmistakable.

Several species of bullhead so they cone in a variety of colors. Easiest way to tell a bullhead is their head is rounded like a channel, and their tail is rounded like a flathead.

 You are most likely right, but that cat has a lot of head :lol:  about 1/3 of his body

It's that time of year when everyone is up shallow and hungry. In addition to largemouth and smallmouth this past week I've caught; warmouth, green sunfish, crappie, walleye, white bass, drum, channel catfish, flathead catfish, and trout. A finesse or micro jig fooled most of them. A couple of my favorite ones, I have a soft spot for flatheads, even tiny ones.

I caught 3 walleye on Thursday, this one being the largest at 20-22 inches (board only goes to 18 so I didn't bother measuring).

My oldest also caught a monster crappie from our neighbors pond on a wacky rigged 5" stickworm. It looks big in the picture, but it was even bigger in person, 15-16 inches by the mark on rod he was using. The 5" bait just about fit in it's mouth without having to be bent.

23.5" red (PB so far)

21" with vegetation (circled in red) growing out of his side? Looked like its been there for a while because the flesh healed up around it.

Manatee came and spooked me, and then spooked the reds I was sight fishing...

Also ran into dolphins the last two times I've been out. They came within 20 feet of the kayak.
