  4. Details: Flathead Catfish

    Nice 23lb flatty. This fish hit as soon as the bait hit the bottom. I used a kayak to run my bait out and by the time I got to shore he was peeling line!! Right ...more before this fish I caught an 11lber so when I rebaited this is what happened! Fishing a steep shelf drop off at the end of a sand beach. Caught in 30ft of water. Fish hit around 10:50pm. Never know what's gonna happen with these guys!

      You use blue gille?

      It's pretty complicated but it's very effective
    8. Trevor Duran 0
      What this does is keep only the lead on the bottom. The bobber will keep the bait swimming around and trying to swim down. It keeps bait alive a lot longer too since ...more it never touches the ground @rileycarew

      Then make the bottom part of the swivel a leader for lead. Again fit the size lead to the size of bait. I use 6-8oz bank sinkers. Make the lead leader at least a ...more foot longer than the hook leader
    10. Trevor Duran 0
      It starts off with a sliding bobber rig then for the swivel it's a big triswivel. Use a bigger bobber to fit the size bait. Tie the hook leader to the bottom ...more of the "T" on the swivel. Then

      How do you set up a 3 way suspended bobber?
