Seems like around here(Western PA.),you can catch them on worms in the spring for some reason,but when you try it later in the year you end up getting all channels.:0a36:
I put a big ball of river worms on a 1/0 to 2/0 treble hook. Worms get washed in in heavy rains. I have had some crazy times fishen feeder creeks, feeder ditches, and flooded lawns ect. Its a great bait for when the rivers get into the tree lines. Its a good spring early summer bait that is often over looked by flatt and blue hunters.
Lots of flatheads come in on worms around here. If you ever catch snagged2 fishing without a nightcrawler pole in I'll buy you a beer. That dude has caught alot of flats on nightcrawlers. I beleive in them but don't fish them much.
The few flatheads I've caught have all been on crawlers. I tend to use a size 2 hook with 2-3 crawlers on it. You have to be careful though. I ended up getting a carp last time.
Ive never been abel to catch flatheads on crawlers because all the dang stripers beat them to it...still good for action when things are slow though!
Nightcrawlers,,,, Don't leave home without'm!!:wink:
Pretty much everything that swims can be caught with them, as far as I've seen...
