Is this a Yellow Bullhead?
<p>HI, I <span style="font-size: 12px">caught this guy on a worm at a local pond. Is he a Yellow Bullhead </span>or a different type of Cat?</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="http://i.imgur.com/zEode.jpg" style="height: 403px; width: 537px;" /></p> <p><img alt="" src="http://i.imgur.com/PxR6L.jpg" style="height: 403px; width: 537px;" /></p> <p><img alt="" src="http://i.imgur.com/KH5kD.jpg" style="height: 403px; width: 537px;" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>It was caught in Ontario (markham to be exact).</p> <p>Hes my #10 on my lifelist no matter what but I hope it&#39;s a Yellow as they arent as common as browns in my area.</p> <p>Thanks,</p> <p>Giuga10</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>

Thanks everyone for the help!

Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
