One Fish, Two Fish, Spikey Fighty Fish

We fried them up in cornmeal and Cajun seasoning. Mmmmm m m m m m. These are bullhead catfish, the largest here is about 12 inches, but they caught a 14 incher tonight.

It is pretty amazing how easy it is to catch fish in our pond, these buggers fight back though. Good thing they are tasty. They have spikes and teeth and will bite.


  1. do they eat other dead fish

  2. I'm not sure what you are asking? By they, do you mean my children? Yes, they eat lots of fish, all of which are dead when we cook them and eat them.

    If you mean the fish? Bull head cat fish are bottom feeders and do eat other fish, but not typically dead fish.

    There are better ways to clean up a post winter fish kill than to release bull heads.
