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
It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Boy, if I say "sic em", you'd better look for something to bite. Sam Shelley Rancher and Farmer Muleshoe Texas 1892-1985 RIP
