      I zoomed into the photograph as much as feasible. Based on the number of the anal fin rays, my best guess is this is indeed a Channel Catfish. A WHOPPER at that.
      ive heard so much crap debunking all the catfish recordes on here its swimming out my ears,lol. looks like a channel to me. rounded anal fin belly not fat and round as the big blues. not to mention its the CHANNEL cat record. a mix would not be elligable.:big_smile:

      if you look at the picture without the B.O.C. tag on the bottom, its got a flat tail. like a Flathead. its not forked like a channel catfish. but i don't know. i don't really care much because if i catch a fish that would go world record books i wouldn't want people knockin on it like that record has gotten.
