    I never hear about people catching yellow cats. My biggest cat was on the Rio Grande River in Big Bend. Along the Texas Mexico border. I hear about Channel,Flathead and blues. Where does yellow cat fit in? They are huge cats that really have alot of fat. We would use throw lines from the bank using goldfish. I just hardly hear of anyone catching yellow cats. Just wondering. Thanks

    That is what I have always thought. Just different names from different regions for the same fish.

    If you ever put a yellowcat and a flathead side by side, you will see they are the same fish, just different names for different geographical areas.:wink:

    Yellow cats bite best in April and September in Texas. Right now they are in deep holes and you have to almost put the bait in their mouth to get them to bite. Catfishjon

    Interesting? I've never caught a Flat around here that even had a hint of yellow. Their typically black or a very dark green. I've caught yellow bullhead though. Maybe it's a location things as far as where in the US their caught?

    I caught a small flathead out of the Ohio below Cincinnati a couple weeks ago that was literally as yellow as a banana.. It looked so weird that I didnt even know what the heck it was until it got into the boat.

    it depends on the color of the water. in imperial valley in ca, there is a river called the alamo river. very muddy and runs red in color. flatheads are yellow in color. (it's also one of most contaminated rivers in ca, but that didn't change cats colors.)

    Here on the Muskingum in ohio, I have caught flatheads from Black to Blueish, Slate grey, most are brown, then I have caught a few that were yellow, and one time I caught a flat that was Orange, way past yellow.
