South Of the River Bullhead spots

11 posts in this topic

Trying to stock up on some 6 inch bullheads. Anyone know of any good spots for some easy catching bullheads? I fish the falls in Jordan and do alright at night. But would like to get a sure fire spot! Also catch some creek chubs but they are not that big.

Any info would help, Need to stock up for a contest coming up!

Bucks Lake on HWY 93 between Le Sueur and Henderson.

Lake Sakata. It's a drive, but may be worth the trip.

Thanks for the tip. I've never fished there and wasn't aware of the the ban.

I went out there to check it out. I caught a ton of bullheads. Most of them were border line 7 inches. Id rather them be 6" and know im good. I didn't keep any at all but they are still fun to catch! Bite after bite! I pulled in atleast 30 of them. Too bad about the millfoil! I would have had a full bait tank after today

Heaven forbid any milfoil gets in the Minnesota River...maybe put some river water in the lake and kill it off.

A couple years ago when they were doing the work on the LSH High School, there were larger tankers at the LS access filling up. They can take water out of a body of water up to a certain limit, but for what they were using, they were well within their limits.

    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
