    well went fishing today. for a little under 2 hours. only took shrimp and some off brand meat or hot dog . i'm not sure what it was . but i was only looking to enjoy the weather for a couple hours. didn't even care if i got a bite. and my hot dog got a big run. misssed it. did catch 1 channel. and what i'm not sure was a bullhead or a flatthead. this thing was colored unlike any bull head . he was really small. like 1 pound. or smaller. but his head was BIG really big. i couldn't get over how much it took up of this little guys body. now i have bullhead in my aquarium. and i really dont think it was . it was in a pond that the river floods into .i will call it a bull head . but my father was there . and seen it . and he isn't so sure it wasn't a flattie. it wasn't like any other fish we had caught. andi aint ever caught a big flatt yet. wish i had a camera. but i decided not to stop fishing. and was happy to have 2 small fish and a big run. for 2 hours. better then just catching a cold.

    Hey Mike you did better than me today. I spent 5 hours without a bite lol. If both of you thought it was a flathead it probably was. Bullheads are uniform in color down the length of their backs, flats appear mottled or patchy looking. Going from light to brown to dark in a patchwork or puzzle sorta way. Not one soild color. You know what I mean? They resemble bullheads in every other way. Flats look like they have giant freckles lol.
    Anyway glad to see you post again, and are still out there fishing.

    way to go mike , check online and see if you can tell what you caught , flatties have fairly large heads all thru their lives but they are not very tall from chin to top of the head hince flat head , bull heads are big headed as wide as they are tall

    Also a flathead does not have an overbite like other cats. Bottom jaw sticks out further than the top.
