    White catfish have a sharper shaped belly fin.The fish he is holding seems to have a rounded fin,more like the bullhead.Also the tail of the white cat has a little more cut in the tail,similar to a channel cat where his fish has more of a rounded cut in the tail :D

    OK Guys,Check this pictuer out.

    The first tail fin is a White cat,
    The second tail fin is the one that Bigfatcat caught,
    And the last tail fin is a Black Bullhead.
    Which ones look more alike?

    the record for a white catfish is only 18 some lbs.....the one this guy is holding looks a bit heavier plus you can't really see the fork in it's tail or the belly. But I would say Bullhead.

    Danny Threerivers, I do believe you're right. It's a WALYPOG! At least I think it is. Course I ain't never seen no white cat. We don't have none of them down here in Texas. We got a lot of other white stuff though., like horses, cows, pigs and chickens and stuff like that. I thought white things are supposed to be white. So what's up with a white catfish that don't have enough sense to be the right color? Is it some kind of disguise or something? Real bullheads are supposed to be yellow or black., I don't think there is a white bullhead. If a black one crosses your path, will you have bad luck?

    On the other hand, the first fish has a tail a lot like the second fish and the second fish has a head a lot like the first fish. Also the body of the second fish is a lot like the first fish. The left eye of the first fish looks just the right eye of the second fish and vise-versa. The fins look the same too. I didn't get a good look at the butt, so I can't say much about that. Well, I guess I could, but I don't want to. That's how dogs tell each other apart, only they have to sniff it.

    If you took each fish and cut them in three pieces and put salt and pepper on them and mixed them up in a bowl of cornmeal, it would be real hard to tell them apart. If you fry it, a piece of the first fish would taste a lot like a piece of the second fish, unless you try to eat the head of the second fish and the tail of the first fish. Or the head of the first fish and the tail of the second fish. Then they might not taste the same.

    If you had three fish and ate one and gave one to your cat, how many fish would you have left? If you went fishing and didn't catch any fish, how many would you have then and what would you have for supper? If white catfish are not white, then how do you know what they are?

    If you got this far, then you know I can talk without end about things I know absolutely nothing about, kind of like a politician. I only stop when I begin to bore myself. As Poppie mentioned before, I studied under Professor Irwin Cory.
