Salmo Bullhead Lure

Recommended Posts

eagle_3464

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

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!

      Who hates when your monofilament line wants to come off your reel. Let me share some tips and tricks with you on spooling your reel and help fixing this problem. https://youtu.be/CkFtOHn9nm0

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.
