im new to the forum. this is my first post id like to say hello to everybody and im in need to some advice. ok... im about to give up when it comes to these fish... i can catch 5-10lb flat heads all day on small goldfish no prob. heres the issue... im using whole bream about the size of my hand. and 6/0 hooks. usually the flatheads take them head first and run... i assume? .. im hooking them in the upper part of their back, i have my bait clicker on and line in the water, they strike and i let them run with it for a bit... but i swear everytime i go to set the hook and im almost 100% sure fish on. They just spit it back out? am i doing sumthing wrong by setting the hook to early or late?? as i said i believe im using the rite gear 6/o hook, 40lb test with a 60lb leader,3oz-5oz weights. this has happend to me a total of 4 times today on fish that i know are well over 20lbs. i really would like advice from you guys that have been catching these monsters. this is driving my crazy!! i feel like a JACKA$$ ive been fishing for awhile but never really started going after big catfish until recently.
