    Was it a channel cat? I find them to be the most active and aggressive, and "the most like other fish".

      I have caught channel catfish on a spoon but not a crank bait.

        Caught a channel catfish on a spinnerbait last week. Complete surprise.

          Sure have, a couple of times. All were channel cats.

            Caught one on a dry fly one time. My buddy also caught one on a inline spinner once.

              Just once and I don't even know what kind of cat it was. I was in Colorado fishing for bass on the Front Range in an old gravel pit.

                I have caught channels on crankbaits before but they are by no means "the more aggressive catfish".I would have to say it's flatheads on lures for me.Every stupid river fisherman will think you are an idiot casting your ass off until you hook up and then they are left sitting and waiting on a bell to ring while you got the fish/fight of a lifetime in your hands!

                    Blue's and channel's mostly eat live meat so they will hit a deep diving crankbait. Went fishing yesterday with wife and she caught a channel on a crankbait. Caught lots of blue's on crankbaits too.
