Bullhead, Brown

I'm not the best at Brown-Black bullhead ID (someone please contradict me), but this actually looks like a Black to me. The first indicator to me is the remnant of the 'half-moon' crescent at the base of the tail, and secondarily it doesn't have any mottling at all (some Browns don't have much, but it's rare that they don't have any at all). 

I know there are some good Brown Bullhead waters within striking distance of your area - go gettem!

I've seen some brown bullheads without any mottling here in PA.

I'm not great with bullheads either, but my home area is outside the black bullhead's range, so anything with dark whiskers is a brown bullhead here.
