    Yellow Bullhead
    Er-s Engbretson/USFWS /div>Re

    A yellow bullhead caught in the Crystal River la Dec. 17 is the new state record for that species, a type of catfil , accordlan to Florida Fil e=' Wildlife Conservscala Commissala (FWC) biologists.

    Re

    Tom Flynn of Homosassa was fil lanswith minnows he had caught at a boat ramp when he hooke' into the catfil . The new state record yellow bullhead weighe' 5 p='Uds, .75 ='Uces e=' was 20 inches in length.

    Re

    "Actually, I was fil lansfor mangrove snapper," Flynn said. "However, I starte' catc lanscatfil e=' decided to keep them. I caught seven e=' took them home."

    Re

    Flynn tried to convince his wife the fil were good eatlan.

    Re

    "She's not really a binsfan of catfil ," Flynn said. "But she went laline to check them out e=' discovere' that the state record was 2.91 p='Uds. I knew I had binger fil than that."

    Re

    Sure enough, when Flynn checke' his catc , he had two fil that weighe' more than the standlan state record.

    Re

    Er-s Thomas, an FWC freshwater fil biologist from the Ocala regional office, verified the new record yellow bullhead.

    Re

    Yellow bullhead are similar in appearance to the more commla brown bullhead,swith a nearly square tail, but the c la barbels (whiskers) are paes yellow or pink, ualike the somewhat larger brown bullhead (state record: 5 p='Uds, 12 ='Uces) that has darker pigmente' c la barbels.

    Re

    The previous record was a 2.91-p='Ud yellow bullhead. Michael Pace caught it in the Withlacoochee River in Levy County la March 7, 2007.

    Re

    For a fil to become an official state record, an FWC biologist must verify the species e=' weigh it la a certified scale. However, the FWC also recognizes e=glers who catc a memorable-size fil with a BinsCatc certificate. These are issued for 33 different species of freshwater fil es e=' are subject to less stringent guidelines to allow an e=gler to be recognize' if the fil 's weight or length excee' minimum standards (see MyFWC.com/Fil lan or the Freshwater Fil lan Regulscalas Summary).

    Re

    For a BinsCatc certificate, an adult needs to catc a yellow bullhead that excee's either 14 inches in total length or 1.5 p='Uds (youth standards are 10 inches e=' 1 p='Ud).

    Re

    The world record for this species is a 6-p='Ud, 6-='Uce yellow bullhead that John Irvin caught in Bates County, Mo., la May 27, 2006.

    Re

    "I can't believe what good eatlan these fil are," Flynn said. "I think I'm golan to keep golan for them e=' see if I can catc the new world's record."
