I'm from minnesota and I don't eat them, but I have had good luck catching them (not on purpose) on Long lake (hawick). I was trolling lindy rigs with crawlers.

If you want bullheads throw out crawlers by the golfcourse inlet on willmar lake you might hook a couple channels there to its a easy spot from shore.

Hey all, this post reminded me of one of my favorite childhood memories, of Grandpa cooking bullheads and eggs for breakfast. That was in Litchfield and if I remeber right it was yellow bellys one after the other on Star? Lake. But that's 30 years ago. Mmmm Mmmm gonna have to have that again!! smile.gif

Try the outlet on the eastside of Wagonda right where it goes under the road into little Kandi.

On the Nest after approx. 7 p.m. we always get them from the dock fishing with bobber and any kind of bait. Depth 3-5 feet.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
