These white catfish fish photos shown below are close up pictures showing you exactly what a white catfish fish looks like. White catfish are not well known by most fishing anglers, because they are only found in brine water, where the water is part fresh water and part salt water. Most fishermen are familiar with channel catfish, blue catfish, and flathead catfish, but white catfish are commonly confused with bullhead or even blue catfish due to their color. These white catfish are good eating, but do not grow nearly as large as other catfish do.

You can see the tail is forked but more like a bullhead, not as forked as a channel catfish. The color has some blue tint, and they are usually very light on the bottom and dark on the top.

Please remember to always following fishing regulations for size limit and numbers, as it is important to release fish to help keep the population strong for the next time you go out fishing. Remember when releasing fish that you should handle them as little as possible, and get them back into the water as soon as you can so they dont die later.
