    im french cajun...down here we're raised growin gardens, fishing, hunting, trap and net making, froggin, snappin turtle huntin...u name it, we do it. my boy jaden is where all my time goes...makin sure my heritage gets passed on!
    by the way, u think thats flatties? i think teir yellows...they have spots on em...look at the side profile...the pic of him head on looks like a flattie, but i dont think so b/c of the shape of the head. its not as tapered as a flattie...
    thanks for the comment!,

    I thought it was flats at first too... but that lower lip isn't protruding out. I am no expert, but I think that is yellow bullhead indeed.

    Pretty positive those are bullheads, look at this 1lb. flathead for sure to compare. When I caught it I was very surprised on how flat the head actually was.

    At first glance in your closeup pics they do look like flatheads. But upon further inspection I would agree that they are indeed bullheads.

    And I think Matt was just trying to thank you for posting the pictures and congratulating you (compliments). That's what people do on this website. I don't understand the hostility.

    no he is right.. about 95&#37; of catfisherman_eky3s posts are one liner post count padders and it is pretty annoying to click on the [new post link] and read a whole page of one liner posts that amount to nothing ... but he isnt the only one doing it... :confused2: he had 67 1 line posts between 1pm and 9pm yesterday.... over 50 of them were between 7pm and 9 almost a post every 2 minutes.. you can hardly even read a whole thread that fast !!! all 1 liners so i would say yes he is a post padder !!! :cool2: and i agree with cajun-angla i dont see the point and to me it is really anoying..

    Hey Shaun, them are definately some type of bullhead. They make really good cut bait for turtles also. I catch a lot of them in my turtle traps. They get stung up and used for bait. Them that size also makes some great live bait for the big flatheads. A big hook through the back hangin' on a limb line in the right place could produce a goodun'!!!
