    Where in the central Ohio area would I have a good shot at catching a lot of bullheads?


    Thanks

    rob,if you find out,let me know :D
    i haven't really fished for them since i was a kid,but catch them on occasion,while fishing for other species.toad and i would help you catch 'em if we could find a good population of good sized ones :D :cool:

    check your pm'a for a little piece of "flat"head info. ;)
     

  3. Well i'm not sure if this will help or not but I used to catch a lot of bullhead out of the Black Fork River in Ashland/Richland county. I mainly fished it upstream of Charles Mill. Central Ohio could mean down around Columbus though, in which case you'd have a bit of a drive to Ashland.

    I've caught quite a few out at Indian Lake with crawlers on the bottom.

    buckeye has plenty,but i don't catch that many bigger ones to make it worthwhile keeping.again,i only catch them accidentally,but if i targeted them,i'd catch lots more than i do ;)

    Larry I am guilty as charged! But don't tell anyone. LOL :D
    I am a rookie, and I am going to do some experimenting.

    Thanks for the input guys. I know that some of the laks in the Akron area are just polluted, as is lake Milton. But never caught them anywhere else.

    hey "juststupid" :D ;)
    i knew what you wanted them for,but i would like some to feed myself :D
    you're only 20 minutes away from your bait source,and there are even some flatheads in buckeye ;)

    I resemble those remarks!!!
    Well I guess I am going to have to venture to the ocean and try to get some of the little suckers.
     
  10. Ive been to buckeye and i caught a few nice ones
     
  11. Justcrazy I fished Buckeye in the spring for channel cats with chicken livers we would catch a couple,then the bullheads would take over.Nice all were 12"+ we were fish in the pads about 3ft. water with bobber 2 1/2 ft.Couldnt keep them off must have caught well over 100 c&r had ablast they were all full of eggs. We ran out of bait two containers of livers,so i would suggest Buckeye around the pads even this time of year.

    Dude, if you want small ones let me know, I think I can get you a few dozen real easy. I know a pond that has way too many and we need to get rid of them.
