    hey guys im new here to BOC im trying to rid a local pond here of some bullheads they are taking over and they have big red sores all over there mouths and tumors on there bodies. I dont want these things in there and would like to catch many of them and get rid of them. My question is what baits work best to really put a hurtin on em i usually just get em on bread meant for carp but i only get a few this way anyone have any ideas?

    Depending on your state laws you may be better off trying a seine net and just scoop most of them out.

    Check with your local DNR, they may send a biologist out to look @ them & may help you out getting rid of them, JAT
