16.0" / 4.0 lb. Black Bullhead caught by Sam Schwartz fishing on Sunday July 05, 2009 at 10:40 in Lake Winnipesaukee near Moultonborough in Carroll County, New Hampshire (NH), United States North America using a hook with night crawler and Smell Jelly a Worm

It all started on a very windy day. We tried to go on the boat to fish, but it was too windy so we cast in the marina at Jonathan's Landing. We were using basic hooks with night crawlers and Smelly Jelly (which really seems to work!!).

After a few worms were stolen from me, we knew the fish were hungry. I cast my line into the water waved it around and felt a nibble and then the fish took the bait. The fish felt like a hundred lbs while I was reeling in (did I tell you I am only 8).

I couldn't believe how big the fish was. It was a catfish and was the first fish I caught on Lake Winni. My dad said it was the first catfish he had ever seen on the lake. So we thought we should post it for everyone to know they exist here.

Off to try to catch some bass for dinner now.
