IF NOT WHAT IS
IMHO anything that swims in the waters your fishing is what the flats eat as they are used to eating them.
In my opinion....( live) bluegills

Excerpt from "Fishing For Catfish", by Keith Sutton:
"A study conducted in Georgia's Flint River......Researcher Steve Quinn examined stomach contents of flathead catfish from the river. He found flatheads less than 12 inches long fed primarily on invertebrates, mostly crawfish. Flatheads between 12 and 24 inches subsisted almost entirely on crayfish.In flatheads greater than 24 inches, the diet was 96 percent fish by weight, primarily gizzard shad, sunfish, suckers, and other catfish."
best baits for flatheads are live bream eating size ones preferably!!!!!!
