      I haven't caught any bluefish b4 but I've caught ladyfish on small jigs. spoons work pretty well for just about anything (I recomend a krocodile) and that's ...more about all I know! ohh sand fleas are also..
    4. Chris Catlin 0
      I'm not much of a surf fisher but I'm going tomorrow! umm I've caught some bait fish on shrimp, then pretty much anything you catch will work as sharkbait!... ...more croaker, pinfish, stingray etc.

  3. Details: Flathead Catfish with a Flatheads

    If I'm using 3-6 inch bluegills and creek chubs, what size and style hook should I use? For big channels and flatheads.

    1. Dreed97 0
      Thanks @SwampMafia and I use smaller baits because smaller and big fish will take it haha because very rarely do I or see anyone catch big fish. @trevorfish
    2. Trevor Duran 0
      Exactly what I do with carp up to 3lbs lol it feels weird using small bait now haha @SwampMafia I was just messing with you lol I know you don't use 11/0's ...more for a tiny bait.
    3. Swamp Mafia 0
      @trevorfish I like circles, but that's just personal preference. I try to use big baits for one main reason, to keep the small fish off my hooks and give the ...more big cats time to find it.
    4. Trevor Duran 0
      3-6in gills are pretty small for flatheads but will catch channels easily and flats. A 3in gill is small so use a small hook. Don't go putting an 11/0 in a 3in ...more bait or it may kill it 😉 @SwampMafia
    5. Trevor Duran 0
      I mainly use j hooks like gamakatsu. Circles will work but I prefer j's myself. With gills I would use 5/0-10/0 but it depends entirely on how big the bait is ...more so use what fits the bait size
    6. Swamp Mafia 0
      Either should work just fine. For best results match your hook to your bait. The bigger hook will work for 6"+ sunfish and bullheads. The 6/0 should be good ...more for medium sunfish and medium cut baits.
    7. Dreed97 0
      Thanks @SwampMafia I got 6/0 and 8/0 gamakatsu circle hooks, it seems like there big tho the 8/0 is about 1.5 inches around
    8. Swamp Mafia 0
      Circle hooks are still not a standard size across all brands. I use 11/0 mustad circles and they are about 1" around. I have caught some channels and blues ...more that are less than 12" all the way up to big

      Ok. Thanks a lot for your help. @wyldechylde77
    2. Chuck LaBruna 0
      Normally use a leader length of fluoro anywhere between 12"-24", 18" the norm. Usually go with 10 to 12lb fluoro, sometimes 6lb fluoro when the water ...more is really clear.
    3. Chuck LaBruna 0
      I use the Moss Green the majority of the time because it blends in with the water better. Camo is good for stained to muddy water. If using 20-30lb braid, it's ...more the diameter of 6-8lb mono, so I..
    4. Dreed97 0
      Oh yeah do uou use the camo color?@wyldechylde77
    5. Dreed97 0
      Yeah good point! And yeah I go I normally use a 10lb flouro like p line. It stiffer and better knot strength I feel like. Thanks a lot @wyldechylde77
    6. Chuck LaBruna 0
      Oh, and if you are going to use it for X-Raps and Rattle Traps, I would suggest using a fluorocarbon leader tied to the braid for that stretch and strength. 😉😉
    7. Chuck LaBruna 0
      Well, think of it this way: you've used PP, you've used SuperSlicks, try the Sufix 832 and form your opinion from there. We can all say this and that, it's ...more ultimately what you feel comfortable with 😉
    8. Chuck LaBruna 0
      Well, think of it this way:

      Haha ok thanks a lot. Not sure what I'll get now. @wyldechylde77
    11. Chuck LaBruna 0
      Depends on the size of the spool you want. I get it for $17 for a 150 yard spool. Might be a little different where you are located. Have never had a problem with ...more 832, unless it is my own fault haha
    12. Jimmy_Lynch 0
      PP Super Slick. Used power pro since it came out and have used all other brands of braid and they don't compare to SS. Second choice would be Spiderwire.
    13. Dreed97 0
      Never used the 832 but I used a different braid by them and the color faded and it frayed really easily. @wyldechylde77 how much does it normally run?
    14. Chuck LaBruna 0
      None of those. Go with Sufix 832. Probably the smoothest casting and most sensitive braid I've ever used. Takes a lot of abuse before it even remotely starts ...more to fray. Spiderwire is my 2nd choice 😉

      Thanks! @always_the_eels and haha ok sounds good. Thanks a lot! @4x4Active

      I've used it to for a whole just seeig if the other stuff it worth it. Thanks a lot! @4x4Active do you use just green color?
    18. always_the_eels 0
      I agree @4x4Active Go with the power pro
    19. Dreed97 0
      I've used it
    20. 4x4Active 0
      I used PowerPro for many years now. Saw the slicks a few months ago and decided to try then out. Threw it in the trash after 2 trips. Break easily and does not hold ...more up. Get the original PowerPro

      @AllWaterLife don't go cheap! Especially with floro go with seaguar red label for $10 I would get 12# test.
    3. Dreed97 0
      Ok thank you this helps @fishwizard52
    4. fishwizard52 0
      You can always use a long fluoro leader in clear conditions. Just don't make the mistake of going too heavy on the braid for the type of fishing you do. PP Super ...more Slick or Spiderwire Invisibraid!
    5. fishwizard52 0
      Once you get more into the largemouth game though, definitely invest in another outfit spooled with braid. It's great around cover and will give you much longer ...more casts plus no stretch.
    6. fishwizard52 0
      @Dreed97 I agree with what's been said above about mono, it's a very versatile way to get started, and I still use mono on several of my largemouth spinning ...more setups. I like 12 lb Berkeley Transoptic.
    7. james5nds 0
      I use mono over fluro just because of the price and my opinion is that fluro isent that much greater than mono. I know all of its bennifits but for starting out ...more just stick to mono and try fluro later
    8. james5nds 0
      Sinks faster than mono and braid floats. I think it's partially preference as well
    9. james5nds 0
      It all depends on where and what you fish. They both have separate advantages braid has no stretch or memory and a thin diameter but is easily visible but fluro ...more is invisible and is sensitive and
    10. AllWaterLife 0
      @eastonsutley I can feel it real well with mono, but maybe I'll buy some cheap flouro just to try it out for a while.
    11. Dreed97 0
      Thanks! @Jimmy_Lynch @bassinboy01
    12. eastonsutley 0
      Haha @AllWaterLife looks like you need to use some floro as main line it really help with feeling the bite especially with plastics.
    13. Jimmy_Lynch 0
      I like 30 lb power pro for braid for almost everything especially cover. And then 12 lb trilene for mono and almost anything else. Both get the job done for everything
    14. AllWaterLife 0
      Don't listen to me then! Haha
    15. Jacob Breaux 0
      @AllWaterLife What?!!! I ONLY use fluoro main line for jigs and plastics.
    16. Jacob Breaux 0
      for moving baits like spinners. Topwaters too since it floats
    17. Jacob Breaux 0
      Good info above. 12lb big game will get most stuff done to get you started. Once you get more into it, braid for heavy cover, fluoro for jigs, worms, anything you ...more need to feel the bite, mono
    18. AllWaterLife 0
      @eastonsutley I've never met anyone besides @allennnnn_ that uses flouro as a main line.

    22. King_Fisher 0
      I like mono 12-14 pound test is always a good bet for lighter baits for heavier baits like jigs I like 17 and up.
    23. William William 0
      I like a 30-50 pound braid for pulling fish out of the nastiest of cover. Flouro is most affective at 10-14 pound for hard baits. But you can go as high as 20-25 ...more if you are fishing a jig with it.
    24. William William 0
      Helpful when you want to get your crank bait, jerk bait, or plastic down to the desired depth more easily.

      It having more hook-set power due to having no stretch over long distance hook-ups. Fluoro has it's purpose too. It is practically invisible so it works out ...more great when fishing clear water. It's also..
    27. William William 0
      Both have their place as does mono. I throw braid for flipping heavy cover to yank those fish out of all kings of thick vegetation. I also use braid for frogging ...more and throwing buzzbaits because of...
    28. David Fairchild 0
      Flouro has it's application, but I have been broke off on Flouro too many times! Starting out keep it simple. Awesome line and reasonable cost. And you will ...more have plenty to respool later! @Dreed97

      What pound braid tho? @zach74
    34. zach74 0
      Flouro or braid with flouro leader. Flouro is easier and 12,14 or if ur going for other fish like catfish, get 20
    35. AllWaterLife 0
      @eastonsutley I've never met anyone besides @allennnnn_ that uses flouro as a main line.

    37. eastonsutley 0

      I like Berkley's Trilene. I use it in 8-12 lb test, of course I haven't tried punching mats with it and that could make a big difference.

      Never really tried mono. Just flouro. @AllWaterLife

      Why not mono..? Flouro is generally used for a leader, if at all. At least where I'm from.

    43. Sean Hannan 0
      Heavy cover and largemouth I like braid. For smallmouth I will exclusively use fluorocarbon in 6-12 lb. a good rule of thumb is the clearer the water the lighter ...more the line. Hope this helps. Tight lines
