Also, I think your channel cat is actually a blue cat. They can get massive.
That's definitely not a pure strain musky, maybe a tiger musky.

We don't get blue cats up here. Our channel cats grow big though. Average fish in the Red and Assiniboine Rivers are 30-35" and 20-25lbs.

That Pike is definately just a Pike. It looks a lot like the Pike from some places in Europe. You can almost tell where they are from by the way they are marked. This one would have thrown me off. Looks like more mainland European markings. Every once in a while you just get one that's marked oddly. It's a real nice fish though.

No picture of the fish, it was a 24" catfish that I caught by casting a Conehead Zonker Muddler at a broken dam. It didn't really pull out any line, but when I tried to bring it in it would just tug away from me, so it took forever to land.

I named him Big Eddie.
