people have told me there are NO flats on the red, but to me this doesnt look like a channel.

Great pic's and very nice fish too, but all are most definitely channel catfish.

Because I am a $$^-%^^ KNOW-IT-ALL...here we go Eh. wink.gif

The first big tip-off they are true Channel Catfish, is the Forked Tail.
channel.gif
Channel catfish of any size or dimension will still have a distinctive
Fork Shape to it's tail. As long as the tail is intact and not damaged that is.
flathead.gif
Flatheads in contrast have a distinctive Box shaped tail.

The second strong indication they are channel cats is on a Channel Cat the anal fin is much longer then that of a Flathead, having some curve through out its entire length.

On a Flathead the Anal Fin would terminate rather abruptly, again somewhat boxed in shape in comparison to a Channel Catfish. You can also count the rays of the anal fin to be 100% sure of the species. I do not remember the exact number off rays for each species right off hand, but there are far more on a channel then a Flathead. Dark30 and Dennis are likely to know the number right off the top of their heads, me....I forget. wink.gif

Blue cats and Channels are more often misidentified as one or another. Even by long time cat fisherman, they get them mixed up. MANY a Southern angler SWEARS that our Sumo Channels are Blues...becaus...Well Channel cats just don't get dar darn big! If I had a dollar for every time I heard that one Eh! But they do, and they do strongly resemble a Blue at the Sumo stage if you do not look for the tell tail ID factors.

Any...Hoooo...Great fish and some awesome pics, thanks for sharing them. Love them piggy pics...Yup-Yup!

Beaverlakeman nice Fish! Was wondering what the cat in your fourth pic weighed took the wife out to the river tonight she is 5'2" and she caught a 3-4 pound cat and said she did not think she could ever pull in a 10 pounder well about a half hour later she pulled in a huge cat the biggest i have ever seen pulled out of the river and its way bigger than the walleye I have on the wall so I think its somewhere between 10-15 pounds she caught in on a fathead so it was a little surprise but anyway it was maybe pretty close to that pic if not a little bigger.

Rusty, Just wondering how big is that channel cat in your picture, and I'm guessing that picture was taken at Lockport?

That one was 30+ #.

Caught it right off the end of Stu's dock.. along with about 15 other cats..

You have to have your pic on the net somewhere first.. then right click on the pic, get the properties, copy, then paste them in here and add.. to the front and at the end of the html. and walla you got it..

Kent,

The pics were there for a while. That means that the problem isn't with posting them, it's with the storage of the pics on another website. When that website gets their **** together, the pics will reappear. I might have to try another image storer because mine is notoriously flaky.

Thanks Scoot, let me know if you need the pictures again.

MJ haven't been out for awhile but its been kindof slow but I'm sure its going to be picking up with the water raising and the frogs out. There going to have to put on alot of weight before winter and the way this year is going thats not to far off. Going out this weekend so I'll keep you posted.

After a whole lot of trying, prodding, and pestering, my dad finally got my mom to come catfishing with him. She's pretty dang proud of the cats she wrestled in so I figured I'd better post them.

Mom with a nice one.

That is awesome. Did she make reservations for next year already? It would have been a hoot watching her bust those pigs. I remember watching her play about a 40 lb sturgeon for a good 1/2 hr many years ago. She's quite an angler.

Very nice, Like MJ said would have been fun being up there. Man I was just thinking If all are crew went up at the same time we would have one very large group, maybe 40 to 50. Now that would be a trip

      There were a lot of ATV/SxS running around the lake but I found it quite slippery even with AWD engaged.  I did see a couple of snowmobiles crossing the lake.  There is enough snow to keep the slides lubricated, especially when the temperature is above freezing.  If your track is studded that would help traction and slide lubrication.
    • SkunkedAgain
      It looks like it's ATV/SxS season on the lake. Snowmobile season is on temporary (or permanent) hiatus.

      Was back Tuesday-Thursday this week after I discovered that walleye season ends on Sunday, February 25th.  I thought that the season has closed the last day of February in recent years.  I see that I fished on Monday, February 28th two winters ago so lucky I didn't get busted then.   The ice was in very good shape.  I found 15-18 inches of solid ice in the areas I checked.  There was no standing water on the ice and very little snow as shown in the 3 pictures of the McKinley Park landing from Thursday afternoon.  When the temperature was below freezing, the ice was very slippery.  When it warmed up mid day it wasn't as bad.  The landing was starting to deteriorate today, but with the cold weather on Friday it should freeze over.  It may start to get bad again by Sunday when it warms up.  Full size vehicles were still driving out close to Birch Island so apparently that path is still good.   Fishing was very good for late season.  Most of my walleyes were again 9-12 inches, but I did catch a 21, 24, and 27.  I was lucky to catch my limit of 14-15 inchers today to bring home for a meal.  The walleyes preferred small rainbows, but also liked lively chubs.  I caught four fish on the same small rainbow today when I was running low on small ones.  I finally gave up on that minnow when I went 20 minutes without a bite.  I had 3 rainbows come off the hook on their own; one when I dropped it in the hole and the other two when I dropped them to the bottom.  I think that happens when you hook them in the soft part of their body.  I caught my first tulibee of the winter (15 inches) and it really stunk up the house.  I also caught a lot of perch for the first time this winter.  I only caught 1 perch the previous 14 days I fished, but I caught 11 perch in these 3 last days, including six that were 11-13 inches long.  I wish I liked to eat perch so I could have kept them.  The hardest bite I had this week was by the pictured 8 inch walleye.  This little guy grabbed that full sized minnow and pulled it quickly to to bottom of the hole.  (However the 27 inch walleye did peel off a bit of drag bringing her in).  Morning bite from 830 to 1230 was best.   If you venture out the last weekend of the season, good luck.  Be cautious of ice conditions since the sun can really melt some holes in the ice this late in the season.

      i cant speak for out that way but check the st cloud thread.......Rick gavee a pretty decent report on the ice around the area. he fishes a ton in the winter and is thinking of calling it quits............that tells me something!!!!
    • Mike89
      be careful!!  
    • mulefarm
      Thinking about one last outing, any information on the ice?
    • Brianf.
      There's not much snow left from what I can see on our Ring cam.  This is facing North across Niles Bay.  Also, the temp is 44 at this moment so what snow might be left is going fast.  
    • rundrave
      @Rick G   have you changed your approach or how you are fishing with no snow cover this year? It seems to really have changed things. Fish are spooky to  any movement above the ice.  Even just jigging a rod with your hand etc. spooks fish. Weed lines are not dying off etc., fish are staying up shallower etc.   I have had a lot more luck just dead sticking and bobber fishing and being away from holes or intentionally drilling holes in slush pockets or drifts to eliminate shadows etc.
    • smurfy
      Awesome cause Rick!!👍👍👌
    • Rick G
      Fishing has been pretty good for the most part with the exception of a slow day mixed in here and there. Been on a few different lakes in the last week. Ice conditions continue to fluctuate depending on warm and cold spells.  Right now there is 7-8 inches on the lakes I have been on. Snow cover is just about gone again, and with the warm days coming I think our ice season might be coming to an end locally.  Today I fished with a good buddy and we were on a mission... To find enough fresh fish to feed the folks at a local veterans home Friday dinner.  Mission accomplished!!!   Found a good mix of perfect eater size fish😁.
