18.0 in. White Catfish caught by Brian Shea fishing in New Jersey on 07/31/11
18.0" White Catfish caught by Brian Shea fishing on Sunday July 31, 2011 at 17:08 1.23 km from Rosemont in Hunterdon County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a creek chub a Baitfish

I fished the river from 6 to 12:30 today. I fished one rod with a jighead(w/ shiners and crawlers) and I livelined some creek chubs on my other rod. I caught a 8 inch striper and a 14 inch channel cat on nightcrawlers and a 11 inch smallie on a shiner. On the chubs, I got a 21 and a 24 inch channel cat and a fat 18 inch white catfish. I also got a hit on the chub and for some reason my baitrunner got hung up. As soon as the fish felt the rod bend it spit it. I reeled in a dead bait with teeth slashes about 3/4 the way up so I'm thinking a big walleye or small muskie.

My buddy caught a 2 lb smallie on a creature bait and a 10 in. smallie on a senko. He also got a big bluegill on a nightcrawler.

Whites and Blues are very heavy for their size.

The picture doesn't do it justice. This baby was fat for a white catfish. It did eat an 8 inch bait.
