Bullheads in Rochester

5 posts in this topic

It’s kinda an awkward request (I know), but I’m looking for a place in Rochester that has an ample supply of bullheads that can be caught. I’m starting to get into this flathead catfishing deal and the bait of choice seems to be these 5-7” bullheads. It’s tough (and spendy) to buy these bullies, so catching them is the next best thing.

Please email me if you don’t want to publish the info. I’d gladly exchange hotspots if that interests you.

PS.. It takes about 20-25ish bullheads per trip.

I used to catch lots of bullheads directly below the dam at silver lake. You could stand on the bridge (on the side closest to the dam) and look down and see large schools of bullies sitting right outside the current. I would drop a hook and a worm right into the midlle and pull them up. I haven't done this in awhile but it might be worth a try. smile.gif

I've seen people catch them off the dock at willow creek reservoir before with crawlers on the bottom. You'd probably have to deal with the sunnies, though.

I agree with muskylover9.The schools of bullheads where he is talking about is huge and should'nt take much to get your 25.Please see if you can make a dent in the population as they seem to take over water everywhere.I think South Dakota should call it their state fish.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
