    In one of in-fisherman's books, they say that hybridization between blue and channel cats has been happenning in the wild in certain areas for some time. There is a foolish term that is commonly over used, though. "blue-channel cat" is no hybrid. Ive heard people at many lakes and rivers in ohio speak of blue channel cats. These people seem to simply be mistaken when the aren't used to seeing a large dark adult channel cat, which look strikingly different than the often more common juvenils.
