Technically speaking there is no such thing as a mudcat.

I was always told mudcats were bullheads and rarely reach any great length. They do have a somewhat flatter head than a channel or blue. Usually colored up like a darker version of a yellow or clathead.

The only way I have had sucess Flathead fishing is using small Bluegill or,large shiners for bait.They do look different than a Channel.blue or bullhead.
