Guys Ive had a different week than I have ever had for catching flats. I have not been targeting them and have been catchin them during the day while bluefishing. Me and a partner caught two around 10 am in the morning during a tournament last week in the Ohio River. One was 17 and the other was 20 on skipjack. We came in second in the tournament so was fired up on that. Then while catching skipjack I hooked into a monster flat around 40# with a 1/8 ounce jig at the dam. He came to the top of the water around a bush and I knew there was no way I was getting him in but was yelling at people to look at the size of the flat on a crappie jig then the hook got bent totally straight,. Also have caught smaller flats this week in the river during the day under 10#. I still believe a better success rate is for sure at night because I havent been targeting flats during the day but have been getting lucky and catching them. Maybe Ill get a monster flat for the Cableas tourney because I still havent seen one at a daytime tourney.
