Hello all. I need the help of the masses once again. I went out yesterday afternoon on the river and did pretty good. I caught a half dozen blues and a half dozen channel cats or so. Overall great day. On one of my rods I had a carps head (A big one) which I had used all day without anything touching it. Of course, my regular fishing buddy was laughing at me until right at dark and time to go home, the drag started hissin and the fight was on. I thought I had a big Flattie. It took me 10 minutes or so to get the fish in and I thought I had a pretty nice blue. On closer inspection in the boat, this was unlike any blue I had ever caught. The fishes head was massive, and resembled a blue cat, but it had the distinct body shape of a channel cat, and had the trademark forked channel cat tail. It also had the whiskers and fin placement of a channel cat. Its head size was way out of proportion with its body. Best way I can describe it is picture a saint bernards head on a dachsunds body. I quickly checked the State record for a channel cat and it stands at 34 pounds and 10 ounces. Mine weighed right at 30, so I released him. Is this a channel cat guys? Do the big channels head get big like that? Is it possible to have a hybrid channel and blue mix? Of course I didnt have the camera or I would have taken a photo so everyone could see this strange fish. As for coloring, he was colored just like a Blue. Thanks for any information.
