Bullheads for sale?

4 posts in this topic

I dont suppose anyone would know how one would go about getting a sales permit for selling minnows well mainly bullheads. I have a spot where i can easily get a sellable amount in just a few hours. i was there today and got what i will need for the weekend for 4 of us in 20 minutes. the water has no milfoil so im clear there. these lil guys are perfect for bait too, they run from 3 inches up to and over 7.

I looked in the book and all it says is you need a permit to sell them and you cant transport from infected waters and nothing over 7 inches.

thanks guy goodluck fishing

Well no one has answered yet so I'll just shoot you my first thoughts, I'm not exactly sure about how to go get a minnow sales permit, but if you haven't yet I'd suggest checking the MN DNR HSOforum or calling them.

DNR

If you are going to sell them, make sure you have a consistant supply. Bully spots come and go with the season progression. Bait shops are going to want someone reliable throughout the summer. If they can't count on having a reliable supply, the probably won't carry them for you.

ty for the advise. the spot i have i know well enough to keep a good supply. i used to hit it for leeches in my float tube and would see monster schools of the lil buggers. i was tinkering with the idea of selling on craigs list myself as i have a pal with an unhealthy obsession with fish tanks and some rather large ones at that, and he is intrigued with the idea too.

off the subject question. has anyone seen a crossbreed between goldfish and shinners? as i am sure i have found one in an innercity pond they have telltale markings of both species and boy o boy i hope it is cause they have no regs on them and they are they are very fat greasy looking things. granted i would only use them as cut bait as i will not be responsible for any new invasive fish

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
