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.

      I found fish on Friday like the old days it was a lot of fun but I decided not to deal with the slush and the sled on Sat.  I heard that may of been a good decision because I heard people burning out their sleds in the slush, running them wide open just to barely move.     Nothing like sledding in a rain storm, I guess to find them it has to be painful.

      HI ... I was out on a Lake Saturday Morning and two guys I noticed were catching nice Crappies hole hopping with electronics of coarse.  Finally after a bit from a semi far distance (far enough to not be able to see color but know it was the vertical spoon ones) I asked what they were using as they were packing up.  "Forage minnows no bait" one said.   So my question/s is?   Has any one fished Crappies with these?  I am a pug bug plastics guy here for Pan fish.  What particular colors has anyone had success with?   I am assuming the smaller spoon but I see they come with treble hook and or single hook?   Bob

      Thank you for the zip code, for the last 3 years I lose the tailgator reception at night around 8 I never know what zip code to try I sure hope it works.  All day everything is fine, evening comes I lose signal.

      I used the thumbnail method with all but the heavier split rigs.  If you're doing a bunch it gets sore.  I then use a small eye glass screw driver.  Once I get it started to remove the old one I slip the new one in behind it.  One falls off and the other on.   Careful, those small trebles are hard to hang onto and sticky sharp.

      really neat to see the lake from the aerial view!  Cool to see all the roads and the paths out there.  Kinda fun to look at the road systems and name what resort they are from...
