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 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

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
