Bullheads for flathead bait.

Recommended Posts

Guest

Can I catch a few bullheads from a local lake, and bring them over to the Minnesota river to catch some flatheads.

I've never used bullheads while fishing for flatheads before, but I have heard it works really well. If I can use bullheads any tips you guys and gals could give me would be awesome. Thanks!

There is a gray area here in the laws.Its kinda a sticky deal becasue you may not transport live fish,but a bullhead of less than 7" is considered a minnow.So my GUESS is that you can.
For the best answer I would email the DNR and get an answer from them.I have used bullheads on the MN River but the ones that I used came from a creek that entered that river.

Does this apply for any fish or just bull heads? I knew some people that used to use small perch for fishing northers.

It's illegal to use perch for bait in Minnesota and also transporting live perch or any live game fish is illegal. Not sure about rough fish because some can be used for bait.

I e-mailed the DNR just about a week ago on this. The reply from them was: "As long as they are under 7 inches they can be used for bait, but only four of them can be transported between lakes." This was received from Kevin Kyle of the MN DNR.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
