    looks like a bullhead but judging by it's eyes may verywell be a flat.

    i caught one once that was about 5 inches long on a nightcrawler fishing for smallies. Chubbahead got one this past summer that wasnt that much bigger. those pics of yours sure do look like a bullhead....:confused2:

    Could very well be a baby flat. I have never caught a brown bullhead that had that coloring. However, I am drunk. So who knows.

    Don't wanna break it to ya, but that's a bullhead!

    Stick a 10/O king kahle on it and you'll be surprised the big flatheads that would eat it.
