    Tomorrow I will be setting my trap for a mess of perch and bullheads. I have never used bullheads for bait so this will be a trial run. I was wondering if these fish should be cut up as cut bait or left alive all night. What have you guys had luck with.

    Thanks
    Dave

    I use them live. They are good bait! They will live on the line till something eats them.

    Bull heads make good bait for flatheads. Use them live. Also you can cut of tail for the added blood trail.

    Use them alive, they are very hardy fish.

    TIP....Break the pectal & drosal fin bards/points, just break them enough so they can't become erect.
