    Could it be possible for a Flathead catfish to breed with a Channel catfish ?

    I don,t know if it,s genetically possible,but their spawning temperatures are so far apart,I think that alone would keep em from crossbreeding.:wink:

    Bigger flatheads are most likely to eat a channel cat

    According to the hunting and fishing library YES flats can breed with channels

    I don't think so!

    They are totally a different species of catfish.

    They do interbreed blues and channels though.
