Not 100% sure due to the pic, but from what I can see of the anal fin, I'd say it's a channel. Nice fish.

100% Blue cat. Blue cat eyes are farther forward on it's head. Also the anal fin is longer with a straighter bottom edge and has more arrays. Dorsal fin is taller and more pointed. Side by side they are easy to see differences. This Youtube vid will help https://youtu.be/udYENQax_18


From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the earth."

Then He made the earth round...and He laughed and laughed and laughed!

Cool pic with that alligator, I didn't catch it at first until I read the comments and went back and looked, once I zoomed in and saw it clearly I was thinking that thing is awfully close. thumb
