I just started chasing flatheads a while back, although i've only caught two, and neither one have been very big, both have been a blast. I've caught both on my Ugly Stik Ultralite. the first one came in quickly because i only had about 3 ft of line out when he hit. The second one, was real fun. I was casting out for bait when my jig tipped worm stopped cold. At first i thought i had snagged, but then the snag started moving. the two i've caught will definatly keep me chasing them!
