I've processed 1000's of catfish and never seen this before. The picture doesn't do it justice but this fish was as orange fleshed as a shrimp fed trout or king salmon. When I netted it and bled it I noticed it had an unusual golden hue to it. it went home with my fisherman for the day but I wish I would have kept a loin to see if it had a different taste. He'll let me know.
