Catfish are abundant, adaptive, and useful fish when properly introduced to a pond, river, lake, or other water ecosystem. Henneke Hatchery provides catfish stocking and catfish for ponds in Texas to keep your ecosystem healthy and make your location a fishing hotspot.
Catfish rank just behind the bass and crappie as a favorite game fish in Texas, including both blue catfish and channel catfish. Both blue and channel catfish live and breed in deeper water where they can easily hunt and hide. While some breeds of catfish are known as bottom-feeders, Texas catfish feed on insects, crustaceans, mollusks, smaller fish, and some plant material. This, with their astounding size, makes them preferred fish for game and eating. As catfish can easily outcompete other fish that hunt in their same sphere, it is important to control the reproduction and introduction of catfish in any area.
Texas catfish can commonly achieve 50 lbs in weight and large adults can achieve up to 100 lbs or more. To add this fish to your fishing lake, pond, stream, or another area, contact Henneke Hatchery.
