White Catfish caught by Bill Greenwald fishing on Wednesday May 15, 2013 at 07:29 near Vincentown in Burlington County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a White skirted KVD a Spinnerbait by Strike King Lure Company

Was bemoaning the fact that I only had one hit this AM, when I got quite a surprise. This guy hit hard, thought a big bass or pickerel.

Only the third catfish I've caught in last three years. (Never target them) Not sure of ID.......Brian, Dennis, Angelo, any comments?

Thanks guys, wish I'd counted the rays on the anal fin.

Definitely a channel cat. Tail gives it away.

I agree. It can only be one of those 2 fish and I am also leaning more toward the White Cat. A few friends of mine have also caught catfish with spinners in that same spot. Nice catch my brother.

I'll try to Id it, This is just my opinion and Knowledge. In the photo it's hard to tell, Channel Catfish has a straighter Anal fin while a White Catfish has more of a shorter rounder anal fin. Channel Catfish also is more darker and have dark spots all on its side while a white catfish doesn't their sides are blue/gray to blue/black and may be mottled. Also I think that a channel cat's tail is more V shape than that of a white. So from the photo I'll say it's a White Catfish.
