    I agree you can’t absolutely distinguish blues from channels by color but another way to distinguish them is that channels have some dark spots on them. Blues do not have dark spots.

    Don't not rely on the color of the fish.

    The anal fin on a blue is rectangular, with square corners. It resembles a pocket comb.

    Look at the difference in shape of the anal fin of your fish. It is a channel.

    Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day; deport him and you will not have to feed him again.

    Nice fish! Interesting bait you used , I’ve caught cats on a number of different baits but never on hotdogs. You are correct that is a channel cat.
