The hard headed catfish pictures shown below are picturs of a catfish caught in many southern and easy coast creeks, where the fresh water mixes with salt water. The hardheaded catfish like saltwater and normally are not caught in pure freshwater rivers. These are often considered a nuissance catfish as they are normally not as big as the good eating catfish like channel catfish, blue catfish, or flathead catfish. They also produce alot of slime and stinging when you are trying to unhook them.

How to identify a hardheaded catfish? Some characteristics of the hard headed catfish include whiskers along the mouth, white or grey in color, forked tail, and skin instead of scales. (Always remember when releasing fish to get them back into the water as soon as possible and not over/rough handling, so the fish do not die after being released. Just because the fish swims away does not mean it actually survived).
