Walking Catfish Specifications

Deliciousness: Poor

The Walking Catfish is characterized by a long light to dark grey body, with dorsal and anal fins running the length to a large rounded paddle tail. The whiskers and barbels all look the same, his pectoral fins and thick and face downard, and with these, he can travers land for some distance, relying on his extra air breathing "lings" to sustain him.

These fiah are found is murky and still to slow waters, but given his ability to migrate, may be found virtually anywhere, even on wet or moist land!

These fish are an introduced species, and not a tasty beast at all, so these fish are not a targeted species of the Florida angler.
