White Catfish Specifications

Size: Most common at about a half poun up to 1 pound with the occasional beast weighing in at 2 pounds. Reposrts have this fish weighing in at much, much more but seldom if ever caught any larger.
Fight: Not an agressive striker or fast runner, but capable of giving a good pull.
Deliciousness: Excellent
Range: Fresh Water Technique: Still Fishing
Baits: Earthworms / Crickets / Fresh Water Baits Tackle: Spinning

The White Catfish is characterized by a grey to green body, lighter than that of his cousin the Channel Cat, with no spots and a similarly forked tail, but more rounded at the tips. As is customary with his family there are barbels present at the lips, and long whiskers pertruding from the corners of the mouth. His head is large and flat, and has a more pronounced slope to his forehead.

These fish are found in moving waters or in still waters near inflows of other water, most likely congregating at deep sloughs or holes.

Live baitfish, cutbait, crickets and earthworms make for the best natural bait, while artificials are not commonly used when targeting this fish.
