I was fishing today on a neighbors pond and caught a speckled bullhead with what appeared to be recently healed 'rake marks' on the back portion of his body before his tail. Could these have been caused by a flathead? There are supposed to be flatheads in many of the nearby ponds but I havent heard of anyone putting flatheads in this one. The marks were on both sides of his body and met at the top. I have been fishing this pond for a few months and noticed I never catch a small bullhead (or any bass or channel cats for that matter) The bullhead with the marks was the smallest yet. If there are flatheads in this pond, how do I catch them from the bank? I have put a few large bullheads on hooks and let them free swim but no luck so far.
