Just In Case You Thought Bullheads Were Only Scavangers

Those of us who respect the bullhead hear people bash them in ignorance all the time.

“Bottom feeding scavengers that eat nothing but mud and poop.”

In a word absolute nonsense, yes bulls are opportunistic and will hit your stink bait or cut bait but in the wild the bullhead is primarily a predator.  Their most common prey are crayfish, minnows and small fish like sunfish.

Check out “Bob the Bullhead” when his keeper gifts him with some lively minnows.
