Had to be a flathead....never seen a yellowish, blue cat..and that would be a world record channel cat.......the state record flathead is 80 lb.......a 5ft flathead is probably around 70 pounds.....they generally spawn starting in late may through june......It is a great time of the year to catch flatheads in shallow water areas on cut-bait......some people think they will only eat live bait.....but this time of year they can be caught just as well on fresh cut-bait............hope they turned her back to grow bigger....I think the State record Flathead will be broken in the next few years......because there are numerous 80+ Flatty's out there to be caught
