Small Bullheads

4 posts in this topic

I have 100+ small bullheads in the 2-5" range, will these work for Channels? Also I know we can not sell minnows, but can we trade them?

They should work just fine. The walleyes have been hammering those smaller bullies lately as well....always a nice bonus. Trading is completely fair game. Are you looking to trade for anything specifically?

Bullheads that size make good cut bait. Take a scissors and just cut off the head right behind the gill plate and snip off the tail and you have a perfect hunk of cut bait. I use about a 5/0 circle hook and just hook on the cut chunk leaving as much of the hook exposed as possible. This hunk of cut bait leaves a good scent trail - every 15 to 20 minutes replace the chunk with a fresh one to keep the scent trail going. If you don't have a hit within about 5 to 10 minutes move the bait around in the area you are fishing. Sometimes moving the bait just a few feet right or left can trigger a hit.

I figured if I could trade for soem traps or something along those lines it would be great.

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
