BLACK BULLHEAD

Smaller than the other, more sought-after catfishes, the bullhead is brown/green in color and doesn't have the forked tail like the channel cat. Common in nearly all streams, lakes and ponds, the bullhead readily bites worms and stink bait and delights youngsters learning to fish. The state record is 7 pounds, 5 ounces. The world record is 8 pounds, 15 ounces.
