If you want to drive a few miles, Titlow in Gaylord has some nice bullheads. You could start out by the city park by the old roller rink. One could also go around the sportsman park on the east side of the lake and then continue to the next bridge. park there and walk to the dam.

Those spots have always produced for me.

I don't know anywhere down your way, but O'Dowd lake in Shakopee has some good ones too. The problem is I think that lake might be on the infested waters list, you will want to check before going of course.

I used to get lots out of the Crow in Hutchinson, but now that they changed the dam, I don't know if that'll be a realistic possibility.

i picked up some bullheads last year out of spring lake in north mankato. there is a shelter near a ditch that runs out of spring lake, that is where i had the fastest action. you can get them all over the lake though. otherwise check the dnr HSOforum for small lakes around the area with large bullhead numbers. all you have to do is click "lake finder" then enter blue earth county and then click "go" under lake information on the next page. that has all the gill/trap net numbers for all species of fish that were caught during the latest lake survey.

    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
