Willow Cats?

8 posts in this topic

So Im failing miserably at trapping or catching bullheads so I was wondering if any of you guys have tried willow cats instead when ya ran outta bullies for just tried them because... I wanna start catching some cats n I havent yet this year, so Im thinking its a bait problem, cuz Ive tried every different spot I could think of and nothing yet... any help would be awsome!

I have used them in the past and caught big cats on them. I am not sure how good they are, but I know they work.

You can get Willow Cats but not Bullheads?

Wanna trade... grin

I'd imagine Willow Cats work pretty well for Catfish maybe a little on the small side but lot's of Big Catfish are caught on really small Bullheads.

I say give it try.

Ill be setting up seine like nets for willowcats with my boss sometime soon, I know where to find them for the most part but I cant seem to find the bullheads, not even to catch on hook the lakes dont have a strong pop at all frown , I have 2 lakes within 35miles so its hard to find some elsewhere.

So willowcats it is for now... Maybe ill have to trade some for bullies smile I have them in my new bullhead tank setup, maybe it will just have to be a madtom tank instead...

I found a bait shop half hour away today that sells willowcats everyone else in my town was sold out plus suckers were all sold out everywhere!, But I did manage to get 3 madtoms in the 4" range so maybe ill have better luck tonight when I go out for some flats tonight.
