Anyone ever heard of butter cats? I've pulled a lot of these from black creeks in southeast Georgia, using nightcrawlers and crickets. They are small catfish, look sort of chocolate brown and taste wonderful! Anymore info on what species of cat? What am I eating? I've Googled and found nothing. Thanks- Jennifer
We catch them in Fl.....I believe they are brown bullheads(spotted bullheads) average 2-3#s....good eating is right.Had some locals call them butterballs.
BTW....guy here in Mo. just set a state and possible "world" IGFA record with a 6.6#yeloow bullhead,beating the state record by a 1.2 margin and IGFA by over 2#.He also caught 2 others over 6# that day.A 3 bullhead stringer over 19#s....incredible!!
