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

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.
