Season and Limit question

Recommended Posts

I live in Cornwall so I fish both Zone 20 and Zone 18. I was looking to go out this year for mudpout/bullhead but looking at the regulations I can not find anything about when the season is open or your limit. I do see channel cat is open all year and the limit is 12 but bullheads are not the same. I can also fins season and limits for crappie, sunfish, pearch, ect.... Since I can not find anything about Bullhead I am assuming ( I know , assuming is dangerous ) that Bullhead is open year round with no limit. Does anyone have any information? Like I said, I have read and re-read the regulations for zones 18 and 20 but can not find anything and I want to make sure I am not breaking any laws. 

Thanks for any help

Eric

I had a similar question a while ago.

This is from the regs-

For unlisted species (e.g., sucker and rock bass), the season is open year-round.

if its not listed there is no regulation concerning the species aside from your standard rules about number of rods used and any bait/hook regulations.

Yes no limits or seasons for bullheads.

Just ensure you are not fishing in a sancuary as this does apply no matter your target species.

What Woodsman said. The areas deemed to be a sanctuary for certain periods can be an issue. You can't plead ignorance either.

LittleWorm, do you catch and release the Bullhead or do you keep a few to eat? I never ate a Bullhead until 10 years ago, they are good out of cold water. I won't eat anything with Mud or Snake in it's name. A bit too early for where we get them. Looking for +8 to 10C air day temps.

I have not fished them in 20 years or so but my dad and myself kept them when we do go out for them. A good deep fried bullhead feed was always tasty growing up.

There are some sactuaries at hooples and on the raisin but the rest of the creeks and bays are good to go 

Thanks Mike, I figure in another week or 2 they should be biting pretty good  I hope.
