Yep, adult blues and channels eat those bullheads like candy and won’t destroy your fishery like flatheads will! You’ll never have a bullhead problem in a pond with a population of adult blues and channels

I agree. Would go with a few adult blues. Flatheads are just freaking mean and will eat your bass for snacks.

Bass wont eat bullheads if they dont have to. Those spines are not good for them. I would not count on bass controlling bullheads....blues though, yup.

I’d go out on a limb and say hybrid striper would probably devour those things as well. Those spines aren’t nearly as nasty as one would think. Probably easier forage to get down than a bluegill.

Update: I had given up on catching any bass this year. All I usually catch are mudcat and a few Bluegill. My son and a friend went this weekend using rattle-traps and deep-diving-rattle type lures. They caught about 15-20 1-1.5 lb. Bass. The Bass may be winnig over the mudcats. Farewell to mudcats!! All we need now is rain.

That guy from Hallettsville said they would survive. At least some of them.

Hey if they caught that many bass in that same size the ones you stocked are making it!

Good luck and keep us posted! Any pics of this pond we could look at? I just want to picture how it looks.
