Channel Catfish

(Ictalurus punctatus)

Channel Catfish provide a great game fish for children and novice fishermen and they diversify the fishing options in the lake. Channel catfish can not reproduce successfully in the presence of bass and they usually remain on the bottom of the pond occupying a different ecological niche. They compete very little with bass before they reach 2 lbs of weight because catfish mostly feed on fish food (if provided) or invertebrates. However, once they reach 2 lbs, they can compete with bass for prey fish.
