Default Fisherman plucks rare catfish from Mississippi

By Samantha Morgan, Producer


BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
A rare catfish was plucked from the Mississippi River by one lucky
local fisherman.

Justin Sullivan and his brother Aaron Lyons were fishing in the
Plaquemine area Saturday afternoon. The Mississippi is always good
place to catch catfish, but Sullivan wasn't expecting his 16-pound
rarity.

The albino catfish is not common in the wild. That's largely due to
their coloration.

A white fish is much easier to spot by predators, so they often fail
to grow to maturity. That's why they are so rare. However, the muddy
water of the Mississippi allows them to hide better than in other
locations.

Other than their color, there's nothing too unique about this
bottom-dweller. The meat tastes the same as any other catfish.
