It's a spring ritual around here. I've been going out for bullhead since......well......1960 or so.  My brother and I used to go bullhead fishing when I was a kid.

Trapper's correct. It's very realaxing to sit by a pond or lake in early spring. Listen to the peepers and the hiss of a 50 year old Coleman lantern,  chase the bugs, catch a few fish and have a great meal.

  Really wanted to get out this weekend, but we are working non stop on the homestead. We built a new home last fall, and this spring we are building a pole barn with a bit of help from ole KP. So we sent the weekend taking everything we could ot of the old... and I mean old barn, putting it in a pod, and getting ready for the new one.

  I digress, Like Rg and Trapp said, Smaller ones are better than big ole Lakers, Yellers are better than Brown's, and Blacks from a spring fed pond, or stream are the best of them all  :D Trapp, try throwing a few in a bag with XVOO, cajun and garlic for 12 hours, then cook em low and slow over some charcoal.... man oh man what a spring treat! 
pass on the passion !

Try filleting them, top with home made salsa and Parmesan cheese, wrapped in parchment paper and roasted on the Weber......Charcoal that is!

Oh man!

wrong wrong wrong green  signs all along lake neatahwanta  says to dispatch any white perch you catch   and  a  dink perch that  swallowed the  hook and  bleeding  from his  gills is not waste to toss to a raccoon ........waste ? do i care  ...no i don't , please go hug  a tree  over there >>>>>


ya know  picking  nightcrawlers   can make a old man sore   :rotflol: but our bait supply is restocked ,i will be heading out  in a little while  to  add more fish to the cooler ( RG probably has me looking like a fool keeping these things in a cooler of fresh water) ...... i am planning on truying the grilled bullhead  recipes  ;D i am also going to toss some in my air fryer ....worked good on walleyes

You're right about picking the night crawlers - I never used to "let" myself come back in unless I had picked at least 100 in a night - now if I get to 75 I don't even think about keeping picking - hahaha.  I think you meant hug a pickerel, not hug a tree  ;D  The raccoons (and foxes and coyotes and eagles) in my neighborhood just named me their "fisherman of the year"   :D

And big ones too. I caught a yellow bullhead once that was close to a world record. Lots of big brown bullheads in Clear Lake east of Freemont.

Tradition, rite of spring, whatever you call it.....we always enjoy a good bullhead chowder with fresh spring leaks (ramps) wild onions. Just something we've been doing, enjoying, for years. The onions need a few weeks though.  :thumbup_smilie:

They are cool birds - I mostly fish the small lakes in Madison county - the eagle(s) don't come down to feed when we are on the ice but I've seen them come down after we pack up and are in the truck to take the odd pickerel that might have been left behind (accidentally of course - once in a while 1 seems to slip out of my sled some how) ;D .  I've seen 7 of various ages at once feeding on a deer carcass on the ice a couple years ago too.  Pretty impressive site
