X Marks the Spot
As it turns out, there's an old bullheading trick based on that very ability. When you make your first cast into a bullhead pond, toss your line out at about a 60-degree angle to shore, then reel your weighted worm back slowly along the bottom. Next, walk about 30 feet along the shoreline and make another angled cast that will intersect your first, creating an imaginary X out in the water. Drag your worm slowly back once again. Finally, cast your bait to the X-spot intersection, sit down, and watch your line. The scent trails that you've created should lead bullheads to your worm more quickly. I've caught plenty of them by doing this, whenever bottom snags or weeds don't interfere.
