How do you get your bullheads?

17 posts in this topic

How does everyone get their bullheads? I have a small pond/lake (public) where I can get about a dozen 4-6 inchers in 20 mins on a small jig and worm, but I have always been curious how everyone else get's there bullheads with out going to the baitshop? Just wondering if there is a better way to do things than what I am doing?

Thanks, TK

so what's the trick to getting bullies to bite and not sunny's???

I have tried several times at a lake that someone on here recommended and I usually give up after catching about 30 sunny's....

Jig and worm, haven't found a really persistant spot though, or i'll go to the bait store.

Got a question on bullhead size, don't want to steal the thread but when you catch a bullhead over 7", can you use it as cut bait?

I was wondering the same thing...... If I catch an 8" bullie an cut it in half... does that count as two 4" bullies??????

I dont think so but it's a great idea..... plus what's the purpose of a big bullie anyway?????? does anyone eat them?

Keep the bigger ones on ice until you are ready to cut them up.
