baby catfish out of backyard pond can someone give me the species? I'm thinking yellow cat
Kinda cute when they are that small. I believe mudcat also.
Yellow cat, Mud cat, Flathead cat. I was always under the impression that they were three names for the same species of Catfish. I did some research and yes, they are all the same fish. pylodictis olivaris. World Record - 123 lbs. I have always called them Mud cats too.
The comon name for that fish is a Mudcat among most Texans, but what it is called is a Bullhead catfish, not to be mistaken with the, Yellow Cat, Flathead or Opelousas Catfish, which are considered game fish in the state of Texas.
even though it is not a gamefish, is it good to eat??
Abotello, there probley not very good out of your pond. when i was a kid we used to camp along Peach Creek, we would catch them and eat em, but keep in the water was cold, clear and running all year long with nothing but sandy bottoms. But heck you could give it a try, people eat Mullet.
Good to eat!?! I never met a catfish that wasn't good to eat!...'Course, I like smoked mullet too...
I love smoked mullet! Grew up eating it every summer with my grandfather down in Panama City, Fl. We would eat it when we were out fishing with some cheese and onion and crackers.
Never tried it, but i guess i need to.
i wouldnt try it
