    Some friends were at Bartlett saturday night and caught a bunch of catfish. I see one that's a flathead (second largest) and the others all look like channels except for the largest one with it's mouth open. I'm on this fence with that one. What do you guys think it is?

    Edit: pic is there now

    I thought it was probably a flathead...just never seen one with it's mouth open like that and I didn't see the fish in person, only the pic...

    It looks like the mouth is actually broken, I have done this with a flat that was cleaned and i kept the head trying to let it dry out and have the appearence of a sharks mouth to hang on the wall.

    just my 2cents
