I have been catching bullheads(yellow and Brown) ever since I can remember putting a nightcrawler on a hook. I was blessed living in north west Iowa on a farm a couple of miles from a lake and close to numerous sand pits and creeks and a river. They bite on anything. They eat anything. The taste of a fried bullhead is the first taste of fish I remember. I truly miss those days because in colorful Colorado bullheads are as rare as a large mouth bass in the Sahara desert. As far as feeding they eat almost all commercial foods, even dog chow. I have been studding the application of a maggot feeder to supplement commercial feed for our 300 acre pond. Maggots eat anything and the fish love them since they are supposed to be 90% protein. A piscatorial road kill café for our little finny buddies.
Blessings and good fishing.

I'm looking at a Black Soldier Fly Larva generator myself. If it works out, I doubt I'll be buying any more feed.

Heck, just hang road kill from a limb over the pond. Flies will find it. I would consider the normal prevailing wind.

Learned about the wind direction many years ago

I've gotten back to researching the Black Soldier Fly Larva Generator.

There's an outfit out of Texas that has gone as far as providing everything to start your own system, to selling live starter grubs (maggots), to selling dried product for feeding to chickens, fish, pigs....whatever. The dried product is listed as having 43% protein, 28% fat, 1.1% calcium and 0.7% phosphorus.

That's as good (or better) than most feeds you'll buy from your local co-op, at the cost of a couple of containers (if you DIY it), a cup of live larva (purchased for starter), and whatever food scraps, garden refuse, even your pets' poop. After the initial startup, you've got a continuous supply of food to suppliment your fish.

Other research regarding the benefit of BSFL as fish food, using carp, telopia and catfish showed improved growth when added to already existing feeding programs as well as a stand alone feed.

Anyone interested in more info, just shoot me a PM and I'll give you the link.
