Recipe: Fried Bullhead


Bullheads are fantastic eating if bullheads are caught in relatively clear water like a clear water lake you do not do anything except clean them,

as quickly as you get home or back to the cabin, toss ’em in a bowl of salted water to soak for a day, drain them, pat any excess water off of the fish fillets and deep fry or pan fry them up!
