Default Re: Channel catfish size comparison

I think it has alot to do with the size of the water system, there is a reason a fish that size was caught out of texoma.... its a freakin huge body of water. It also has to do with forage and habitat... water temps probably have something to do with it as well, catfish are pretty adaptable. Colorado does have some lakes that can produce large cats but we dont have the river systems like alot of the states... if you notice the states that produce large cats they usually come from big lakes with large rivers flowing into them.

The reason its still gaining weight is its an artificial enviroment, all it can do is sit and eat... no spawning runs no predators and always food.
