What is the best flathead bait?
Your choices are good but you should have put it with just live bait and cut bait. There are some here that have caught most of thier flatties on cut not live.
well it does say other for cutt
I think a lot of it depends on what the situation is. For instance, my dad went fishing at Camp Robinson Wildlife Management Area TWICE last week. There are several little lakes in there, and he fished the same lake on both days, at least for part of the time he was there. When he was at the lake the first time, the catfish were biting on Charlie Blood A like they were having a Thanksgiving dinner with that as the main course. The second day he was there at the same lake, they weren't biting on that. He got strikes on Liver and Cheese Stinkbait. And then on the second day he went to Lake Cherrywood, which is not part of the WMA. They won't bite on stinkbaits there...they bite on nightcrawlers, usually. So it varies from lake to lake and even day to day.
Aron, I catch all my flats on cut shad.
where do you normally fish tho because paylake flatheads are known to eat cut bait because theyget too lazy for live prey:cool2:
Aron, I dont fish paylakes, I fish rivers...I was kidding about the paylakes.
You left off bass too.
I could only have ten slots thats why i put OTHER
Has any one here really had luck off live drum
I guess C-4, dynamite and carbide fall under other too ..... ??? oooh: Garry-
during my research of flatheads, the first fish population destroyed by the flatties is redbreasts. However, when checked by biologists, the fish seem to have a very diverse diet, so I would have to say it depends on the body of water and what lives there.
i am really fond of yellowbellies about 6 inches in length
Yea i hear yellow bellies are good baits but i usually stick to blue gill sucker minnows and creek chubs:cool2:
I couldn't vote, I like live bluegill and bluegill heads best in the areas of the Ohio River I fish the best. Israeli Carp & Goldfish would be my next choices. It really matters what they want that night.
We went Friday night and threw Live Bluegill, cut gills, cut shad, cut skipjack, shrimp, Israelis and cicadas and only had one good run and that was on an israeli. I guess the Full Moon had something to do with it....:roll_eyes::confused2::smile2:
to me isreli carp and glod fish are the same just different colors
o and one more thing is cut bait is good as said on this site for flatheads because ive never used it when im actually flat fishing ive always use live but many others on this site only use cut bait for flatheads:cool2:
I have caught all of my flatheads on cut bait. I have tried live bait but it always seems to die and I wind up cutting it up and catching fish, LOL!!! My PB Flathead (63.5lbs) came from a bluegill head.
i dont get it this is the only place where ive heard of people using cut baitfor flatheads :smile2:
You have now found a place where the fishermen don't always go by the "statis quo" and are willing to do what works for them!!!
