The flathead catfish's head is flattened between the eyes and the lower jaw sticks out farther than the upper jaw. It is also has a square tail versus the forked tail that the channel and blue have. Their body is usually yellow-olive or a dark brown with dark brown blotches which is where they get there name "mudcat". Their belly is yellow or yellowish white. Yellow cats are usually found near structure like submerged logs, brush, rip rap, and underwater piles of debris. Using live bait is the key to catching these fish such as a bream or skipjack (if you can one alive) or better yet, goldfish.
