I was looking through a site that listed the South Dakota state record catches and came across the channel cat. It was caught in 1949 and weighed 55lbs. It was caught in the James River which connects to the Missouri. Theyre uncommon, but blues have been caught in the Mis where the James dumps in. The picture shows an impressive fish for sure, but its anal fin sure makes it look a lot more like a blue than a channel. What are your thoughts?
