Flat Whiskered Catfish

The Alien Appeal of the Flat-Whiskered Catfish

Don't let the unusual looks fool you – the Flat-Whiskered Catfish (Pinirampus pirinampu) is a thrilling catch for anglers using lighter tackle. These fish, reaching over 35lbs, have an otherworldly appearance with their long, flat, ribbon-like whiskers that twitch constantly. Despite their alien vibe, they put up a great fight and can be lured in with small cut bait, freshwater Crabs, live fish, and even worms.
