Catfish can make for a fun fishing experience, whether you are pursuing them at a private fishing hole or a public river or pond. Anglers at public waterways are limited to whatever fish may be present in the water. Owners of private fishing ponds or lakes, however, have the choice of what fish to stock, and our hybrid blue catfish is an incredible choice for anyone who enjoys an exciting fishing experience.
First introduced more than a decade ago, our hybrid blue catfish continues to find new fans every year. Try fishing for one of these catfish and you will immediately understand their growing popularity. Different species of catfish tend to have specific qualities, but the hybrid blue catfish has all of the most desirable qualities that any angler seeks in a sport fish.
What is so special about these catfish? A lot. Hybrid blue cats have an insatiable appetite, so you can forget about being disappointed because nothing is biting. These fish also like to hit artificial lures so hard that you may need to stock up on tackle. The hybrid blue catfish tends to prowl upper-level waters, even sometimes jumping out of the water like a bass. Once you hook one of these catfish the fun has only just begun, as well, since they are also spectacular fighters and will prove to be a challenge to reel in.
Hybrid blue catfish also grow fast and big so you don’t need to spend years waiting to catch these fish. In fact, our hybrid blue catfish grow at least 30 percent faster than any other catfish species. This means that with managed feeding, a fingerling may weigh up to 5 pounds after just one year.
If you enjoy fishing your private pond or lake, you will love the hybrid blue catfish. Besides being a fast-growing and challenging catch, once you do land one of these catfish you can release it for another day or enjoy some excellent fillets. One thing is for sure with hybrid blue cats: You will have so much fun that you won’t want to stop fishing.
As Kenneth Henneke has said, “To stop catching them, you normally have to walk away.”
