BULLHEAD


BULLHEAD,or MILLER S-THUMR. A fish that has a broad head and wide mouth, with broad fins near the eyes, two fins under the belly ; and instead of teeth, has rough lips which assist him in napping at the bait: he has also fins on his back, and one below the belly, and his tail is round, and his body all over covered with whitish, blackish, and brownish spots: they begin to spawn about April, and are full of spawn all the summer season; their average length is from four to five inches. Their flesh, like the cray-fish, turns red when boiled; and when their gill-fins are cut off they serve as good baits for pike and trout.

The common abode or haunt of this fish is in holes among stones in clear water, in summer; but in winter they take up their quarters with the eels in mud. They are a simple and lazy fish, and are easily caught in summer; and you may see him in hot weather sunning himself on a flat gravelly stone, upon which you may put your hook, which must be baited with a very small worm near the mouth, and he will very seldom refuse the bait, so that the most bungling angler may take him. It is, indeed, an excellent fish for taste: but of so ill a shape that many women do not care to dress it.

Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835.
