Flathead Catfish

The flathead, also called the "mud cat" or "yellow cat". Its name aptly describes its anatomy, which also includes a dark back and brownish mottled sides and a broad, slightly notched tail. Commercial fishermen have reported fish larger than 100 pounds. The flathead catfish spawns in summer when the water reaches 72 to 75 degrees. It nests in cavities, such as hollow logs, root wads or log jams in quiet water. After spawning, the male drives the female from the nest - violently if necessary. The male guards the eggs and fans water over them until they hatch and may tend the swarm of young until they disperse.

Blue Catfish
The spawning behavior of blue catfish appears to be similar to that of channel catfish. However, most blue catfish are not sexually mature until they reach about 24 inches in length. Like channel catfish, the blue catfish pursues a varied diet, but it tends to eat fish earlier in life. Although invertebrates still comprise the major portion of the diet, blue catfish as small as four inches in length have been known to consume fish. Individuals larger than eight inches eat fish and large invertebrates. Blue catfish commonly attain weights of 20 to 40 pounds, and may reach weights well in excess of 100 pounds. It is reported that fish exceeding 350 pounds were landed from the Mississippi River during the late 1800's.
