Moore's Bait?

Recommended Posts

Three questions: On his site, I don't see any mentioning of bullheads, am I missing it, or did they just not put it up, or are they out of stock? Second, how much do they cost? Third, how much should I get for one night? Fourth (guess I lied), how big do they usually run? If you guys could answer ASAP I'd appreciate it, thanks!

he has them...call or just go in.

Give him 10 bucks and he'll give you a bucket full. Give him 15 and he'll probably double it. I usually bring at least 10-15 bullheads per outing. (This would be my average for an 6-8 hour trip on an evening of fishing) I try and bring more than enough so I never run out.

How big is a bucketful then, should I get two? 2 or 3 guys are going out, but we plan on bringing some suckers too, but it sounds like the bullies are cheaper than the $2 a pop suckers. Should we just go all bullheads?

Oh, and random question: Why do flatheads eat 5-7" bullheads, but everyone uses 9-12" suckers?

Oh and do Moore's do oxygen bags?

We use 5-7" bullheads because that is the biggest we can use by law.

A good rule of thumb for bait is to have a dozen for each person per night.

Moores has oxygen, but I would recommend bringing a 5 gallon bucket or buying one from him (he has a bunch of them). You can keep them quite a while in just a bucket of water. For an extended time you will need some sort of oxygen supply. The easiest way is with a battery powered bubbler and airstone.

Alright, I'll just stick them in the cooler and turn the aerator on when we get to the boat, they should be fine for an hour, give or take?

I kept 2 dozen bullies in a garage in late July changing the water every couple of days for over 2 weeks. I used an aerator and they were just fine. So a few hours with fresh water and you will be ok.

A bucket full sometimes adds to 18 for a dozen, depends on their size. Not a rule to live by, placing them in bags when they have been known to poke holes in them. Best to bring or buuy a bucket for transport.

Alot of people use bigger suckers so when they die (which they will), they have a real nice piece of cut bait for later....yum

    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
