I think they're black bullheads.

I'd say either bullhead like Ryan said, or maybe a channel cat, if you're in North America. If you're on a different continent, probably something else.

Help us out with location/habitat; continent, river/lake, mountains/ plains, heavily developed/mostly pristine, etc

Canada, large clear lake, surrounded by some kind of pine or oak forest. The area around it has lots of hills, but I wouldn't say its mountainous. The lake bottom has a thick cover of plants if you go about 10 meters in.

Probably a brown bullhead then.

Those are bullheads we have them all over.

Some people will look down on you if you decide you want them as aquarium fish. Here they are considered vermin even though they taste the same as catfish. Well OK, they taste the same to me, my wife who has better taste buds says they taste like mud.

Very fast growth.
