Biologists encountered this 13-inch bullheadl that had 18 bluegill in its stomach.
You won’t find a better example of how fish are opportunistic feeders than this.
The photo supplied with this story is living proof. That 13-inch bullhead catfish was captured in a net by Indiana fisheries biologist Tom Bacula while surveying Loomis Lake near Valparaiso.
Biologists were assessing fish populations on Loomis as they do every year on various lakes. The bullhead catfish pictured was discovered in a net along with dozens of other fish.
Capturing bullheads is not that unusual. But this one was.
“The fish’s stomach was bulging and twitching,” said Bacula. “It was the fattest and most unusual bullhead I had ever seen. I wanted to see what was in there.”
