Caught this bullhead today at Maltby Lakes in West Haven. I know they have only recently been stocked and was concerned this might be something that will affect the entire population.

I don't know though, could just be something common.

Here are some pics....





Anything to be concerned about?

I let him go. Just cut the line close to his mouth and shoved him back in the water with my shoe. Didn't want to touch it....

Send an email to the DEEP. I'm sure the biologists would like to check it outc.

I worked at a hatchery for a short stint. If the whole bunch was like that, the shipment probably wouldn't have been accepted. Sometimes weird, nasty stuff like that happens. Good call for not touching it though.
