I would get a fish trap with adjustable throat and try to remove the smaller mudcat, there are a lot of yellowcat fishermen that would like them for bait

Channel cats are easy to raise and bullheads are impossible to get rid of once established. If it was my little pond I would rotenone the whole pond, keep or giveaway the fish and start over with just channel cats.
With a feeder you will have 4 pounders in a couple years.

While l love the flathead idea, the rotenone one is probably the best course. You will never get all the bullheads out and they reproduce quick.

I wonder if you could use some type of large net? Maybe something a 100' long or so that could be pulled by a 4WD pickup or tractor. This is probably a hair-brained idea, but it sounds like something that might work.

If the pond is shallow (<6ft deep), roughly circular or rectangular, and has no brush, stumps, logs, cover etc to hang the net on then a big seine net can effectively empty a pond if you keep the lead line on the bottom and don't loose the catch when you start pulling the net out of the water. You'll need trucks/tractors for big nets. Probably a good YouTube video on harvesting aquaculture ponds that can show you how to do it. Usually have to drag the net a few times to get everything.
