    Does anyone still target these this time of year? It’s been years, but have taken kids out a couple times finding something to do. I forgot how much fun it is at night and excellent table fare!

    Bullheads, first they steal your bait, then they swallow the hook half the time which is impossible to dig out, and they hurt like heck when they stab you.

    Hmmmm….
    1.they take your $hit
    2.hard to get them off and away from you
    3.leave you with scars

    Buddy: hey Nick how’s the sucker fishing going
    Me: was going great up until yesterday, man they were really on the chew then they showed up.
    Buddy: yeah who’s that?
    Me: the ex wives

    Found a new name for em doah

    I’ve been trapping them for catfishing for the last week. I’ve got about 40 in the tank right now. I just pulled my traps because I’ve got enough for a while.

    I’m sure that works but I don’t target them on purpose, always when sucker fishing and Aberdeen just doesn’t do it for me sucker fishing

    That is a nice bullhead. Love to catch some fresh bullheads. I’m in the Menomonie Wi area if anyone knows of a spot to catch any just pm me. Someone told me that they catch them in Menomin but as many years as I fished there I only catch catfish never a bullhead.

    They are one of the best smoked fish I’ve ever eaten. When I was young ( Many years ago ) the DNR netted a Ton of them out of a local lake and were giving them away to anyone who wanted them. Some buddies and I took several 5 gallon pails full of them. Cut heads off, Gutted them, brined in a Brown sugar mix, and smoked them. Almost everyone who ate them said they were the best smoked fish they had ever eaten.
