My brother caught albino catfish in the late 80's. It weighed about 6 lbs. Caught it in roaring river after a big rain.

I wonder since a halibut or flounder are bottom layers and seem to lay on the same side if one side may eat a little differently than the other side.

I saw what could have been an albino but more likely just a very pale colored drum today in the harpeth. Then a while later I was upstream about 100 yd trying to snag a buffalo, and I saw it again. I snagged a scale off it. Wish I could have caught it. I have seen so many drum and their dark grey-blue appearance underwater. This one looked very pale grey if not white, hard to tell when the water is not completely clear. Oh and it was 6, 7 + pounds which is big for the harpeth. I saw its rounded tail very clearly and it wasn't a buff.

The upper side is the only side that my cousin and guide would filet. Not enough tthickness on lower side to make a decent filet.

I filleted both sides of 2 flounder last year and I remember there was enough meat on the lower side to fillet, and these weren't real big fish either.

they are good eating but are very delicate textured. I prefer a meaty fish to flounder any day. Walleye, salmon, cod, tuna etc are my favorites
