Bottom Feeding Tulibees?


Recommended Posts

saw it last year on mille lacs too. we watched em on the camera, and actually have several take our waxie tipped jigs out of the mud. Once we saw them come in, it would be like a frenzy, all within 1 foot of bottom. Eventually the action would slow down. After the frenzy, if we could get their attention, we dropped our waxie tipped jig down intot the mud, and often they'd root around and find it. We caught quite a few doing that. Very memorable, and surprising experience.

The Tulibees that are feeding on the bottom are after mayfly larvae. They eat tons of them on Lake Vermilion.

Half of the Tulibees seem to be suspended and the other half are right on the bottom.

Very easy to catch and lots of fun, but they sure are smelly!

Not edible, even smoked as far as I am concerned! Very fishy tasting!
