Brown Bullhead Catfish
Edit: Thanks to Chuck B for his observation that these are more likely Carp than catfish. Thanks Chuck!

I stopped by Lake Quannapowitt yesterday for some quick shots before work, and noticed a commotion in the water, right along the shore. What I found there were several pairs of Brown Bullhead catfish, averaging about 16-18" in length, cavorting and otherwise raising a ruckus. These gigantic fish were fascinating to watch.
All around the lake's shore, there were countless more amorous twosomes. According to some locals who were walking by, 'tis the season for love.
I took many images, some of which can be seen here: http://bit.ly/btPpxf
