    Yea, probably dinks. When that happens to me I move to another spot, seems like all the dinks hang in the same place.

    if you didn't catch any fish at all and you had a lot of hits, I would say you were the victim of soft-shell turtles. I've had many nights were I had the same thing happen....you would get a tap, tap, tap and a little pull and then you would set the hook into nothing. This would happen over and over and I just couldn't understand it until I foul hooked 2 of those suckers back to back during the hook set. I then realized what I thought were picky eatin' catfish were bait steeling turtles

    I get most of my Flatheads, approx. 80% on what I call the "lite-bite". Some would say that it is just small fish but I know and have see different. The biggins can bite very very soft and along with that, most of the time they will not run with it. My PB Flathead bit like a 6 inch Perch, 39#s.
