what do you guys think the best way to get some yellow bellies/bullhead catfish for bait
Definently check your state laws to see if you can transfer live bait from one body of water to another. Probably best to purchase the bullheads from a bait dealer if possible, or if the body of water your fishing has bullheads, maybe try using nightcrawlers to catch them and then use them for bait.
Hope this helps!!
if your looking for some smaller bullheads. try in a creek that has lots of them or a small river. especially under spillways and dams.
rod and reel and check local ponds they are usualy full of them and creeks like has been said before
community fishing ponds are full of them as gus said. a little bit of liver on a size 2 circle and no sinker. if you hook em too deep, they will be no good for bait. that's one of the best flathead baits out there.
How do you hook em? Through the lips?
probly in the tail would be best
i do the tail it stays alive the longest
the tail is best when you're casting them. if you are just pitching them to a spot or dropping them down, you can pierce just the skin on the side of the tail. as long as your hook point is clear of the bait, it will hook up better, a lot of times right after the pickup.
