    I make my own blood bait and spend a lot of hot summer nights drifting. I have never caught a real big one yet the biggest so far is 12 lbs. but do catch some very good eaters. I beleive in the catch and release (catch and release - in the HOT GREASE) so thats fine with me

    Sounds like a good technique. What are big fish in your area?? 12 pounds is nice.

    we have flatheads that have run in the 50 and 60 pounds. If I'm going to eat them I prefer not over 10 - 12 pounds and not under 15 inches
