    Yesterday I went bullhead fishing with my dad in a little lake in Clague park, Westlake Ohio. If you want to fish for bullheads this is the lake to go to in my opinion. We caught about 20-30 Bullheads in about 1 and a half or 2 hours.
    The fish ranged in size from 6-12 inches and about 1/2 pound to 2 and 1/2 pounds. Next time I go I'll try to get some pictures of some of my fish and the lake. Also if you like Bass fishing it's a good lake. When I was there something, I don't know if it was a catfish or bass almost ate a whole duck, it got it donw under water but then it got back up.

    Dude, I don't care what bullheads taste like, flatheads love 'em. I can't hardly find any this year though. Sounds like you got a good spot:smile2:

    We've got one in a 55 gal. aqurium. My kids caught it in a creek about 7 years ago. It was about the size of a toad tadpole. He's about a foot long now.

    I'm bettin' a snapper had hold of that duck. Big ones are known to do that. What were you using to catch those bullheads?

    hey jason, where i live i know of 4 or 5 ponds farm ponds that are full of them. pretty easy to get as well. i try to catch small gills, then cut them into tiny chunks use a small wire hook, couple of split-shots. there you go!! if there aren't many other cat species in there they are fairly easy to get on bottom. my buddy is raising them in his pond for bait purposes. maybe you know some farm ponds that you just don't know there in? just a thought..rollo
