Was fishing on Eagle Lake in Fort Custer State Park and caught 2 catfish. One was 17 inches and the other 25 inches. Didn't know it had catfish in it. I looked up stocking information on the DNR website and didn't see that it was ever stocked with catfish. Anyway, since i don't know my catfish, I was wondering if anyone knows what kind of catfish are in this lake.

Those size cats are most likely Channel cats. Channel cats have forked tails and grey to silver sides, smaller ones still retain black spots on the sides as well.

Bullheads run much smaller and flatheads have squared tails.
