Caught seven little ones yesterday in my cast net... No fun
Hooking a fish is like playing string with a cat. The exact size, shape, color of string matters less than how you wiggle it- and little cats are easier to fool than big ones. John Gierach

I don't know about anyone else, but I can easily tell the difference. They're called bullheads for a reason. Plus they have a rounded tail vs the forked tail that channels have.

Bull heads resemble tadpoles. One alternate name for them is polywogs among some other more colorful nomenclature.

No doubt...the tip of my finger learned that real quick when I tried to remove the hook. I've caught huge flatheads and stuck my whole hands in their mouth...if a bullhead got that big you could lose a whole hand.

I catch a fair number of them in Athens when targeting sunfish. I always turn them loose. But I grew up in CO and we used to catch and eat them there and they were always good but the water was a lot colder and cleaner than the water here so that may have made a difference.
