    I was out fishing for some bulheads today, and all of a sudden my rod goes into the water. I quickly jump up and grab it before it was out of sight. Low and behold there was a #7 Albino cat on the other end. This is the first one I have ever seen. Have any of you guys ever caught an albino?

    Congratulations. I have always wanted to catch one, but have not been lucky enough to reel one in.

    Nice catch. I've never caught one before, but my dad has. It sure is an awkward looking fish.

    I caught what I thought was a Albino cat at the first degray gathering in Arkansas. After a discussion and looking at it , it turned out to be a white cat. WEIGHED in at 8 lbs.

    Is there a way to tell from the fins? I have never seen a White cat before either and there is no state record for a White cat in Pa. so I don't know if we have them here.
