Small Bullheads

Recommended Posts

I have 100+ small bullheads in the 2-5" range, will these work for Channels? Also I know we can not sell minnows, but can we trade them?

They should work just fine. The walleyes have been hammering those smaller bullies lately as well....always a nice bonus. Trading is completely fair game. Are you looking to trade for anything specifically?

Bullheads that size make good cut bait. Take a scissors and just cut off the head right behind the gill plate and snip off the tail and you have a perfect hunk of cut bait. I use about a 5/0 circle hook and just hook on the cut chunk leaving as much of the hook exposed as possible. This hunk of cut bait leaves a good scent trail - every 15 to 20 minutes replace the chunk with a fresh one to keep the scent trail going. If you don't have a hit within about 5 to 10 minutes move the bait around in the area you are fishing. Sometimes moving the bait just a few feet right or left can trigger a hit.

I figured if I could trade for soem traps or something along those lines it would be great.

    • who has time for that? haha here is some stuff from the same biologist https://www.usgs.gov/staff-profiles/bryan-richards?qt-staff_profile_science_products=3#qt-staff_profile_science_products    
    • Holy craap!  There is pee all over the woods, the DNR needs to stop this before all the Deer and we die!  😨
    • Rank is the order on which you draw for your prefered spot. #1 chooses first. #2 chooses second, etc.   I was drawn as the #1 alternate for the MN DNR hunt, Hwy 61 & Warner Rd in St Paul.  This is a new one for me.
    • The article in the Strib.     www.startribune.com/louisiana-to-hunters-deer-urine-lures-might-spread-disease/490173741/   Why we are still allowing deer urine to be shipped and sold is beyond me.    That Joe Rogan podcast was very interesting and informative.   Well worth the time.  
    • If you are one of the lucky ones who drew a moose permit and ready for Alaska Moose Hunting. These tips and basic hunting guidelines helps you to successful harvest:   Hunt for moose near food sources and water. Use rifle rather than  arrow, bowstring Wear good quality and waterproof boots Moose also have great hearing so wearing clothes that  does not make any noise. Hunt during  August, September. This is best season  for Moose hunting   Hope these tips helpful for you. Contact us if you’re thinking about going on a moose hunt.
    • Might just have to make a little extra for breakfast this weekend and use a little self-control and not eat it for a mid morning snack.
    • Trailcampro.com is a good resource to read their reviews and they have a good warranty. Personal.... I don’t buy a trail cams over $120.         The best time to buy is Black Friday or at the end of the season.  I mostly use stealth cam and moutry. Hope this helps. 
    • Anybody draw? I drew a primary and am pretty excited. This is my first year with the program so wasn’t sure what to expect. What does the rank mean? 
    • Google can probably conjur up some text for the video impared.
