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.

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

    • Everything turned out awsome, I'll definitely be hanging the bellies again. Cold smoked then heat with more smoke.
    • love the answer thirdeye!!!!  hang onto that last bottle!!
    • Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers.    I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

    • You miss the Bush administration? Howso considering the Obama administration was pretty much the same only cooked a little longer?
    • many of my 2nd graders have more frontal cortex development........
    • My trailer is a bit over 20 years old. It was redecked 10-12 years ago with 3/4 plywood decking that was not treated and that lasted about 10 years as well so it seems a decade is the lifespan of regular plywood left outside with no treatment.    I replaced the deck for a second time this year and used treated plywood so we will see if that makes it more than a decade. I would suspect you might expect at least that much life from advantech even though it doesn't seem to be rated for continuous exposure if I read it right.
    • That's what I miss most about the Bush administration. Sure, they were evil, but at least they were freaking competent. Sure, they lied a lot, but at least it wasn't about easily disprovable things like crowd size. When they lied, they lied to further their agenda, not to mask their hurt fee fees.   All Presidents are ridiculed.
      This is the only one who takes it personally. Such a baby. Sad!
