I went fishing yesterday after work at a deep hole on a local creek. I catch a variety of fish there but usually largemouth and redbreast. Well after catching a few small largemouth and panfish on a knockoff Ozark trail roostertail, I hooked into something big. It started digging like crazy and the dinky telescoping ultralight rod I keep in my truck was almost bent in two. I thought it was a huge bass, but lo and behold as I brought it to the surface it was a catfish.

This is the first catfish I've caught. Usually I fish for trout and bass. It seems absurd to me to catch a catfish on a roostertail. How unusual is this? Also is this a blue catfish?
