    Best way to tell that I have found is the anal fin and it is covered in that picture.

    I'm no expert, but look again at the tail.

    Channel cat should have a deeply forked tail.

    Tail isn`t real clear and anal fin is covered.Also I can`t see any spots, hard to read.

    The way you can tell the a chanel from a blue . Is by counting the spines on the anoal Fins . That is the fin that gose to the poop hole . A chanel will 29 or less the blue will have 30 or more. that is the only way you can tell after they get some age on them .
