It may not be a sexy fish, but Montana State University freshman Sam Shelton still got his name in the record books in August with the 1.02-pound, 11.6-inch long yellow bullhead he caught in a backwater slough along the Yellowstone River in June. The fish is a nonnative in Montana and is only found in the Yellowstone and Powder rivers. It is a member of the catfish family.
Shelton is no stranger to titles. He grew up in Billings where he was a state champion wrestler. He’s also an all-around outdoorsman who loves to hunt with a rifle, shotgun and bow, as well as fish for everything from paddlefish and sturgeon in the warmwater fisheries of Eastern Montana, to trout streams in the west using a fly rod.
Going to school in Bozeman, he’s looking forward to exploring some new rivers and mountain ranges. Tops on his list is the Madison.
