I have yet to catch a catfish this year. Keep in mind that when I say catfish I'm including bullheads in that group. I didn't really put any effort into it early in the spring when one of the ponds nearby with a good population was still weed free. Now I am left with luck and sight fishing for bubbling fish, kind of like looking for little carp. Tonight I was hoping to get one of the Bell Pond's many big yellow bullheads. I cast to bubblers after sunset. I hooked up to the first one I cast to and then could not buy another hookup. Bullheads are often tricky to hook on an artificial. You really need one to chew on the fly for a while. A nice bass was the only fish to hand.
