    Not that anyone here would need this, but some people might. I had a call from a friend in Florida a couple of hours ago. He caught a pretty good size catfish and couldn't tell whether it was a channel cat or a blue cat. In Florida the Blue Cats are very dark, blue/black. (see my avatar). So any how ... I had him count the rays in the anal fin and was able to tell him he had caught a 23# Blue Cat. But ....... since he was still confused I put together a link on my websight so he could tell for himself from now on. Maybe it will help some to explain the differences between the two, other than coloration.
