Bullheads have rights too, so says the AFLCIO.

GOT SMALLIES?

I do, now.

The BBT (Big Brown Truck) came today and delivered 75 baby bronzebacks. All appeared to be healthy, active, and as advertised, size-wise (nominally 3"-4", they ranged from a good solid 3" up to one which was over 6" long).

Fish Wife unpacked them and set them in the pond to temper, and after about an hour I made it home and we released them. They are now snug in there beds for the Winter, sharing a Summer's worth of FHM and Gambusia reproduction with 200 YP, 29 RES, 15 male BG, and a lonely, confused Walleye.

In the innermost shipping bag:


Being released (you can see the big one coming out!):


Recovering from their shipping tranquilizer in the pond:


To make it a perfect day, Fish Wife picked up half a hog from our butcher, with an extra 20 lbs of bacon. Life is very good.

Poor Fish Wife was looking at the SMB stocking pictures here yesterday and, falling victim to misinformation, asked me "Do we have Bullheads?"

They're only in Pond #1, with the Redneck Sunfish.

I just didn't know that Bullheads come in the fin variety too. I know we raise them in the four legged and two legged varieties here on the farm. I learn something new every day

The only problem with the redneck sunfish is that they need a steady supply of pork rinds and cheap beer to thrive. The positive side of redneck sunfish is that they can fix anything with duct tape.
