Re: Live bait !!!...where in the Modesto area ??
All the free live bullheads you want in the rocks at check twelve area in the oneil forebay.
Use tiny egg hooks with small piece of red worms. Hand line them in the cracks of the rocks. You can easily get a couple dozen in about an hour.
Well worth the $10.00 entry fee, you will never find two dozen or more live bullheads for ten bucks.
Kids love to do this and can fill a small ice chest with them in no time.........
If you have an aquarium at home, your bait can be dipped whenever you need it and also replenished when your running low.
