Welcome to the site John, nice cat but I don't think it is a yellow cat? Looks like a channel cat to me. If you don't mind me asking, what lake did you catch it in?

I was wondering if it was a channel do to the tail but most channel catfish have black spots on them in these waters.I was in a river that boarders private property.

That fish is clearly a channel cat...and a nice one. You can't always determine fish species by color alone. Channel cats can be anything from pale grey to dark grey to black to the coppery color in your picture. The young also often have spots on them, which usually disappear as they get older.

The key is in the shape of the head and the fins. Bullheads have squared off tails and channel cats have a forked tail.

Here is a picture of a yellow bullhead.

And Bullheads make awesome live bait for big Flathead cats.

How is Steve doing old buddy?

Steve is doing much better these days. Went through some rough times but he now has a great job, has finished his college degree, his daughter is married and his son is getting married this summer.

He kinda dropped out of the fishing scene for a while but is getting back into it.

I know how that is. I went through some family things for a bit, and still am, but they are getting better. I'm hoping to do more fishing this season as well. Glad he is doing better man. Smile
