I'm helping out my biology teacher put together a fish tank of small front range fish, and one of them is a bullhead. I have caught smaller channel cats before, but bullhead have always eluded me. are there any places in or around fort collins that I could catch a bullhead at before friday? Thanks, Rob
BUT, you can't transport live fishes in Colorado, so that would put a nix on your teachers idea. Unless he has some magical ability to get around that rule, then it's a no go.
If you want a cool catfish for the aquarium, get some "African Upside-Down Catfish". They act EXACTLY like any other catfish. I learned a ton just by watching the two I owned. When resting, they hide upside down under rocks and timber, hence the name.

Well I've spent the past two days at the pond behind loveland high school and at fossil creek park, and I have yet to see a bullhead, let alone hook one. I'm using worms on a hook about 6in above a weight. What am I doing wrong? Tight Lines, Rob
