I geared up with 50 # spider wire with a 7oz catfish hook off a t-turn swivel from ThunderMist lure company. And a 2oz weight on bottom. Yes this is my first flathead ...more at 10#. There very rare here!
Bigger bait: bigger fish. Try to get more weight on the line and throw it more into the middle where the current is stronger, big catfish tend to be ambush preds ...more and wait for food in the current
Had tension on the pole and line. All of a sudden the line when way slack. That usually means that the fish took your bait and is swimming towards you. Set your ...more hook and you have em. There's ur proof
