Salmo Bullhead Lure

9 posts in this topic

I've heard a lot about these lures and want to get some. They come with a high price tag so I want to limit what I get. Can anyone lead me in the right direction as to what type, size and color seem to work best in these SW prairie lakes? Thanks for any input fellow FM'ers

I have had good luck and have heard of several others having good luck with this lure in the SW MN area, also would work great when you get out to the Mississippi pools..basically use the same bait out there year around..GL everyone this weekend!!

I tried the hornet crank, but didn't catch anything. I used the stinger and floating minnow and caught walleyes/saugers. I'm thinking the bullhead lure would also be a good walleye crank lure. It's a deep diver. I will be trying one out sometimes. I've yet to try the deep diver hornet.

Expensive lures may mean you get only one...instead of the assortment of different colors. That's fine, it's the action that will first draw a strike.

The Bullhead is a super crank for casting sharp drop-offs and trolling deep fast.

The Clown is a hot one in the Bemidji lakes region is the word. I have had very good luck on the origanal as well as the glow pinks, the clown too in turbid waters.

If you like the Bullhead be sure to try the new Salmo Hornet YZ, it is tearing up the walleye big time here in the Dakotas. wink.gif

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
