A few months ago, there was a brief discussion about keeping yellow
bullheads. Someone semi-humorously responded to questions of disposition of
a yellow bullhead with "Send it to me!". Well, I'd like to do just that if
that person is still interested. I collected a cute little yellow bullhead
this summer with Ray Wolff. It was a wee tiny thing at the time. Well, now
it is about 3 inches long and eating my dace. Well, it eats them and then
disgorges them. It's still not large enough to keep the fish down, but that
doesn't help the dace out much.

Before you all go ragging on me for collecting a fish I couldn't keep, I
actually planned to keep the critter in a 100 gallon tank with a yellow
perch and a couple of larger sunfish. Unfortunately, the logistics of how I
planned to move my fish around as they grew did not work out due to family
