I have bullheads ready to go to work

Recommended Posts

A bullhead is a terrible thing to waste. You can use my bullheads if I can fish with you tonight. My name is Dan; I'm very new to catfishing but I want to learn. I live in Eagan but willing to drive a ways for a promising scenario. Can help pay for boat gas.

Was out last night with Kitty & his entourage on the MN in the SW metro. Had a few bites that resulted in some bullheads with bite marks; that's about it. Not much happening but THANKS AGAIN Kevin, Rick, Jordan, et al. You didn't know me from Adam but took me along so I could learn a little. This is a great HSOforum with lots of great people.

Hey Dan I will have to get you out in the boat next time and then we will have better luck. Thats just how it goes when it comes to putting kitties on shore or in the boat.

OK, Kevin. Sounds great. Was out tonight in John's River Pro, with John's daughter and Rob from Mankato. I donated the rest of my bullheads, so they didn't go to waste. That boat is quite a rig. Rob caught a 4-pound flathead; for me that was fun to witness. I had one on my line for a long time but we didn't know it. We discovered it when we reeled in, prior to changing spots. The bullhead was in an advanced stage of being digested. The skin was gone and it was folded in two, resulting in a broken spine. The cat fought a little as I reeled in but we're theorizing I pulled the bullhead right out of the cat's stomach without hooking the cat.

Ya that sounds like it would've been an interesting site to see. Good to hear that you at least had a more interesting night out. We will have to do it again.

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
