is this a blue or channel, in my profile pic
Willie,that would be a good lookin channel.what did he weigh?
dont kn ow but it was big, i got a flat two but it was small, i thought it was a channel but its so blue ,but the head is a channel head
im not sure, but it looks like a blue to me, just skinny, hard to tell without seeing the anal fin cuz the two fish can look an awful lot alike sometimes. could be just a really blue channel, or could be a skinny blue. usually blues are a little more fat tho. not for sure, youll have to get some more opinions. nice fish whichever one it is tho.
Hard to tell without examining the bottom fin. Heres some pics below that might help.
i think its got to big of a head to be a blue
Looks like a channel to me..You can also tell by the back..A channels back is straight from dorsel fin to tail but a blue has a curved back..Also channels turn more of a slate blue as they get older..
I can't be certain, but I think it might be a Channel...
its a channel and a good one nice job
I thinks its a Channel but anyway Its a nice fish you did a good job.
I think you have a mighty good channel there. Congrats
Can't see the anal fin but the head just looks like a channel cat to me.
as said, you can't see the anal fin. But, looking at the avatar as hard as I can, I don't see a forked tail either. There is only 1 common cat that grows that size without a forked tail. And, they come in different colors. I'd venture to say it was a flathead until I can see a forked tail or the anal fin.
Really nice chanel is what I would have to guess.
well its a flathead on my avatar now i changed it ,i change it alot, ill put it back on now
I am confused, what fish are you talking about? The one on the avatar now or is there another?...why would you ask a question about a fish in your avatar then change the pic? :confused2:
There is no way to say for sure....
But it looks like a channel, but you can not be sure without looking at the anal fin.
The catfish in the profile picture is a channel cat. the head is definently shaped like a channel cat and the more streamline body is characteristic of a channel cat. NICE FISH AND GREAT JOB ON THE CATCH!!! anal fin on a channel cat is curved while the blue cat will have a straight anal fin with 30 or more rays. 24-29 for the channel cat.
HOPE THIS HELPS!!:big_smile:
Dang, I saw a flat now I see a channel. Gonna call the eye doctor in the morning :smile2:
i swiched it back, what u think that is 15 pounds
