    Hello everyone, I have built Sams trap that is in the BOC Library. I have set it out in a small creek and have caught a bunch of suckers and shiners and was just wanting to know everyones opinions on them for flatheads and large channels? They range in size from 4-8 inches. Also I am a rookie to fishing for flatheads. Good Fishing!!!

    stick those on a hook and toss them in... only way to know if the flatties want them is to go out and fish w/ them... BTW good design on the trap

    sure they would be great for flatties they love suckers,i guess you could say they are real suckers for them lol. ok bad joke.But flats would like them more alive then dead but the blues and channels will eat them cut up just fine.im not sure about the shiners.

    Excellent bait you got there. Just have to cast that out and wait for the ride.

    shad works just fine but imo the suckers work a whole lot better
