Little Bullheads

23 posts in this topic

I need to find a consistant source of small, 2-4" bullheads, sadly they will not be used for catting, turns out, big walleyes love them too...

Any ideas?

I have found once you start to target small bullies, every one you get is huge. Then you get small bullies when going for larger ones. Funny?

I am still looking for a constant supply of bullies grin. When you find them let us know.

RR56,

You do not fish the Croix with a guy named Mike do you?

Whereever you are catching your regular size bullies. Try throwing out some minnow traps over night. The bigger guys can't get into the traps, so you'll mainly have the 2"-5"'s.

I know of a spot that has hundreds if not thousands of little bullheads 3-4" long. Are you using these on lakes for those eyes?

You could go to Hanska or any of the smaller lake slough type things by new ulm. If you are up to a 1/2 hour drive you could go to butterfield lake out side of butterfield. There are millions of 2 to 4 inch bullheads in there.

I've got big bullheads, so if anyone needs any let me know, I can find you some and you can take all you want. I would surely trade for some small ones. I'm a walleye guy, it's a sickness...

tj, your on the money with your lake, but the small bullheads are hard to come by, alot of 5-7"er's swimming around.

I will try a minnow trap, what should I bait it with? Or nothing at all?

While were on the topic. Can someone recommend a minnow trap? With the price of gas, I'm going to give catching my own bait a whirl...

I just used a regular minnow trap you can buy at any sporting goods store. I think they only run about $10. A lot of people I know use dry dog food, but I like using scraps of meat or fish.

I have plenty to last through the weekend. The fish have been very active, the action has been great lately. I just need to get one of those big girls in the boat! It would be possible to go through 1-2 dozen bullheads per person in a night. Hopefully a few bigger ones want to play tonight!

I will be going out shortly to pull my traps, are you in need still for small bullheads? If so I will bring the small ones with me, if not, I just throw them back.
