What is the best thing to use to fish for flathead with rod and reel. I thought about big minnows or something, any tips or pointers would be great. I have never caught one, but caught lots of cats. I'm going tomorrow so any help would be great. I'm going to a pretty good size creek where they catch quite a few and most of them are good size, 5, 10lbs. plus. I need to know what to use and how to use it, tie the sinker on the end of the line and let the bait swim above some or what?? Thank you so much and if we catch some i'll have to put up some pictures. :up: Also what about jugs any of ya'll catch flatheads on jugs.
