"So close but he's got potential!"
« on: June 15, 2016, 12:01:56 PM »

Got out last evening at my Secret Spot  for a few hours with the bride. The bite was very slow next to nothing but managed this little football head pig of a Bullhead just as the Sun settled level with the tree tops!!!! 

Personal best in the Bullhead Class for me too.  I believe the State Record Bullhead is 4lbs. 10ozs. for PA..

This guy hit on some cut bait off the bottom and put up one heck of a fight, screaming the drag the entire time on my 6lb. test mono!!

Good time!

Measured him with my new digital scale @ exactly 4lbs. and 19"

Measured, weighed, photoed and returned back to the wild!!! ;)  This fish certainly has the potential to growing beyond the record!!!

Not knowing where you got it being a disadvantage. Your catch could be a white catfish some of the area lakes have them. I think of them as the channel cats stupid cousin. Here is a pic of one nice catch either way.

I have no problem sayin' what lake I caught it in... Francis Slocum

The "secret spot" is an inside joke involving and instigated by my buddy Chez, of course.  lol ;D

but I'm no expert in these flavors of fish

Great catch COWDAWG!!!!!!! 8)
Catfish,Bullhead are under the same listing,on the pa record list from the pa fish commission site page.4lb,10oz.IS RECORD.
no listing on a WHITE CATFISH.IVE CAUGHT LOTS OF WHAT I THOUGHT WERE CHANNEL CATS FROM THAT LAKE.
THEY MIGHT OF BEEN WHITE CATFISH.
I HONESTLLY NEVER HEARD OF A WHITE CATFISH TILL TODAY. :-\
THE WAY YOU SAID THAT BUGGER FOUGHT,,IT MITE BE A CATFISH.
I KNOW THAT SECRET SPOT BUDDY.. ;)
CONGRATS....
GOOD JOB..

Usually juvenile channels have spots and it seem when channels are under 20" a deeper fork on the tail.nice fish anyways.
