Moore's Bait?

9 posts in this topic

Three questions: On his site, I don't see any mentioning of bullheads, am I missing it, or did they just not put it up, or are they out of stock? Second, how much do they cost? Third, how much should I get for one night? Fourth (guess I lied), how big do they usually run? If you guys could answer ASAP I'd appreciate it, thanks!

he has them...call or just go in.

Give him 10 bucks and he'll give you a bucket full. Give him 15 and he'll probably double it. I usually bring at least 10-15 bullheads per outing. (This would be my average for an 6-8 hour trip on an evening of fishing) I try and bring more than enough so I never run out.

Iagree that I would bring at a minimum 15 for 1 to 2 guys. His bullheads are legal

How big is a bucketful then, should I get two? 2 or 3 guys are going out, but we plan on bringing some suckers too, but it sounds like the bullies are cheaper than the $2 a pop suckers. Should we just go all bullheads?

Oh, and random question: Why do flatheads eat 5-7" bullheads, but everyone uses 9-12" suckers?

Oh and do Moore's do oxygen bags?

We use 5-7" bullheads because that is the biggest we can use by law.

A good rule of thumb for bait is to have a dozen for each person per night.

Moores has oxygen, but I would recommend bringing a 5 gallon bucket or buying one from him (he has a bunch of them). You can keep them quite a while in just a bucket of water. For an extended time you will need some sort of oxygen supply. The easiest way is with a battery powered bubbler and airstone.

Alright, I'll just stick them in the cooler and turn the aerator on when we get to the boat, they should be fine for an hour, give or take?

I kept 2 dozen bullies in a garage in late July changing the water every couple of days for over 2 weeks. I used an aerator and they were just fine. So a few hours with fresh water and you will be ok.

A bucket full sometimes adds to 18 for a dozen, depends on their size. Not a rule to live by, placing them in bags when they have been known to poke holes in them. Best to bring or buuy a bucket for transport.

Alot of people use bigger suckers so when they die (which they will), they have a real nice piece of cut bait for later....yum

    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!
