BSF as fish bait

 

I’ll be working on this page soon! Until I compile the information you might like to see a few videos of fish eating BSF grubs in my pond.

Here are a few fish I’ve caught using BSF grubs:

BSF as bait - bullhead cat BSF as bait - warmouth

The bullhead weighed 1.5 pounds and was a surprise because I didn’t stock them in my pond. The other fish is a warmouth which I did stock and it was about 6 inches long. Update; since catching the bullhead above I’ve also caught a 1 pound, 15 ounce bullhead. (I could have just said 2 pounds :) )

July, 2010 – I recently caught a channel catfish that I stocked in one of our ponds using a BSF larva as bait. I didn’t weigh it but by comparing to several fish I have weighed I estimate it was about 2.5 pounds and around 15 inches long. I rarely feed his particular pond with BSF.
