When I am not trophy fishing I like to go fishing for a new species of fish. I took a long lunch to run to Lake Royal in Fairfax Va in an attempt to catch a Brown Bullhead Catfish. This small dumpy catfish which is best loved as flathead bait is rare in Fairfax Va and something I haven’t ever caught so I am embarrassing the challenge of trying to find and catch one of these little guys.
After studying biological survey data and google maps I picked my spot and this is what I caught. Better luck next time. On the up side the goose put up an…interesting fight and was released safely though my Daiwa Regal Z spinning reel seems to have a broken clutch now.
