This post and video show the Bullhead Catfish in the Farm Pond as well as the blue gill.
This weekend I went out to the pond at the farm and fed the catfish. I have been feeding them off and on since I bought the farm in 2012. We believe the person who lived there before me stocked the pond with catfish, sunny or blue gill and a few bass. I have not seen any of the bass in a few years now, so I think they have all perished.
I’m not an expert on catfish, but in looking around at some of the various sites, I believe they are bullhead catfish. Ameiurus is a genus of catfish that contains the brown, black, and yellow bullhead catfish. The fish in my pond have the square tail, which is one of the distinguishing factors of the bullhead catfish.
We sometimes do catch and release fishing with the catfish. I’d recommend checking out bullhead fishing for a good bit more information about this variety of catfish and how to catch them.
The bullhead fishing site gets into some of the jigs that can be used to catch the catfish as well as how to filet them. This site has quite a bit of useful information and I’d recommend you check it out.
Below is a video showing my catfish swarming and eating the food we are tossing in. They are munching on this right next to the blue gill. The blue gills are a little cautious so as to not be catfish entrée, but they are right in there eating with the catfish.
Here is the video titled Bullhead Catfish in the Farm Pond.
