Damn I need help. I have always fished for channels and blues but recently bought a boat and joined the BOC. You all have me excited about these flatties. I set up 5 limb lines...baiting them with live blue gills and checking them at 2 hour intervals. I fish fresh bream cut bait on noodles while waiting for the limb lines. In my last two outings I have caught a 30.5 lb channel, a 27 lb blue, and a 42 lb Paddle fish...all on the noodles. I have caught 2 channels (5-7 lbs) and thats it on the limb lines. I believe gar are tearing my live bream up and the two channels were eating the leftovers. Current set up is 5/0 Circle hooks on 160 lb nylon trot line. I'm selecting green limbs that have some give. Just a note: A co-worker has many pictures of flatheads caught in the Alabama river so I know they are in there. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
