Is this a bullhead it sure looks like it nothing to confirm it though....
HELLO ANYONE FOLLOW UP!!!
Looks like a spawning channel cat to me....
100 percent sure that is a channel cat
dirty dirty channel....although the tail does have a kick down and looks square in photo... could be a sick flathead
Thats a channel cat...
Picture of the fish is hard for me to see clearly. But that is no bullhead.
looks loke a male channel
Nice Channel Cat!
Looks like a channel to me, either that or a small flathead, kind of colored like a flathead on the tail, not a very good picture to tell by.
I have caught a 5 lb Mudcat as we call them in Oklahoma, or as you call them bullheads, I thought at first it was a channel until I looked over a little better.
by the looks of the curved anal fin and the coloration of the fish, I'm going to say it's a channel cat. i agree not the best pic of the fish.oooh:
Here is another I know it doesnt help but its another one lol
little jose got him a nice lil channel cat!
yep, channels get brown like that living life in muddy ponds... thats a male channel... look at its tail if you don't consider that if it was a bullhead, it would beat the world record by over 10 pounds! LOL
It's head sure looks weird in the 1st pic:confused2:
Doesnt it though....I dunno it looked convincing to me but im no cat expert I have only seen ones I caught and I just recently started doing alot of catfishing so my numbers of cats seen are low......
If thats a bullhead where is the record? I do not believe it is a bull head.
I know i had said it was a picture and they thought it was a bullhead I was just asking you guys..If it was one they would not have got it recognized because they ate him shortly after...literally
spawning channel.........the anal fin is a dead giveaway that it's a channel:wink:
Definitly looks like a spawning Channel cat to me to. Nice fat fish though great catch guys:smile2:
The only possibility other than a channel, is that it could be a white catfish. White catfish are members of the bullhead family and belong to the genus "Ameiurus" with other bullhead species such as the black, brown, and yellow bullhead. The white cat is the largest of the group and the IGFA lists the record at 18 lbs. 14 oz. The FHF world record is a monster 22 lb. white cat from CA. In the photo, the anal fin is definitely short and rounded, and the tail looks like it isn't forked too deeply, so it could be a white cat. The only way to tell for sure would be to see if the chin barbels are white (they are on a white cat) and to get a definite count of the anal fin rays. 19 to 23 for a white, and 24 to 29 for a channel, a channels tail is also more deeply forked.
