    What temp does the water have to be to get a good bullhead bite?

    we catch bullheads all year, but the only time i care about catching them is in the warmer times of year, when i need flathead bait! i have caught them in water as cold as the high 30's. in cold water, though, they seem to swallow a bait and sit there, instead of running with it. welcome to the boc, by the way!

    Welcome to the BOC its great to have you aboard on this wondeful catfishing site you will really enjoy and all kinds of good information and tips in the BOC Library, only time I have ever caught bullheads was in warmer temps, and I only try to catch them when I use them for bait, there really good flattie baits.

    They are the very earliest to bite in in South East Georgia.February is the month here.There are many varieties of Bull Heads in many states.Your state might be your biggest help for your area in your state.

    I one spent a week on line with Bull Heads.It was unbelievable how many variates some claimed for Georgia alone!

    I love you Brothers and Sisters.peewee

    I find catching bullheads in shallow water is the best this time of year.coves creeks,drainages hold alot of bullheads this time of year.the common night crawler seems to work the best.

    i catch them in any temp and any depth. last winter i caught one ice fishing with a waxworm 6 feet off the bottom! during their spawn is the best time to catch them. they are most aggressive then

    in my opinion they bite like bluegill, which is about all of the time and consistently

    i catch them the best on nightcrawlers
