The Redtail Catfish or Pirarara (Phractocephalus hemeliopteris) are short, stubby, aggressive catfish with an attitude.
Some of the most beautifully-marked Cats and named Redtails for obvious reasons. Redtails will run, on and on and on… stripping line in long bursts. They love structure and will always aim home. A big Redtail is 80-90lbs and average 50-70lbs.
