I have this argument with several friends every year.

Every year we catch a lot of catfish that are dark gray (Blue) in color out of the lake, rivers connected to the lake, or northern lakes like Norwalk or Spencer.

My opinion is that they are channel catfish that are either, naturally because of age or temporarily because of environment, dark in color.

What do you all think?
Has anyone caught a fish in Lake Erie, immediate tributaries or northern ohio that they can identify as a blue?

The last one we caught I counted the spines (27) in the anal fin but I could not remember which number was which and since my hands were all fish gutty i decided not to look it up on my phone at the time!
