Here is a rare Albino catfish.
I have never seen one before.
Our DNR has it in one of their tanks at the hatchery.
Some of my friends fish Texas regularly out of Zapata.

My father-in-law has a couple in the pond behind his house. I caught one last time I was out there. He says they don't see real well, not sure how he would know that...

Awesome. They are not that rare though. I have caught a few Albino Channels in my life time.

Common issue actually. Never personally caught one but I've seen that one at BPS before and a baitshop I visited near Wright Patman had 2 in a tank there as well.
