Three Channel Cats Three landed three lost long casting with an 8' Slab Seeker Rod and slip float . Chartreuse Buck tail and Red Marabou jigs with worm  did the trick.

Carl, Age is just a number that can't be changed so all we can do is enjoy it.

Gary I didn't Bullhead fish this year and besides the occasional Bullhead when I was a kid I didn't target them till up to 5 or so years ago . I ,like you , used a 1 or 1/0 baitholder  hook .I use a sliding sinker pinched off by a small split shot and six lb. test on spinning rod and Reel, A hot dog chunk is my usual bait and a good size that covers the hook shank . My problem is they always swallowed the hook and I'm looking into circle hooks so I can release them .  Certain waters I catch them in I don't want to keep and eat them .I would like to target them  in another body of water I'm fond of keeping occasional fish from however .

John, To answer your question, back in the late 1950's everyone fishing bullheads that I knew used a large hook maybe size 1 or 0/1 and 3/4 to 1 1/2 oz. football style slip sinker with a wire swivel tied in the line about 18" up from the hook that served as a sinker stop, this way a bullhead could bite & pull the line without detecting a drag in it, we'd wait for 3 quick bites in a row then set the hook hard and pull him in. We used night crawlers for bait (blew them up fat with a needle air bottle) and back then everyone kept the bullheads, they would freeze them in 1/2 gallon milk cartons and water.
