I will make some posts here to help you Fish with our KatBobber to inprove your catch percentages. FLATHEAD Fishing: From about an hour before Dark til Daylight fish the Katbobber in 8 to 10 foot deep water along the bank. Bait with live Bluegill or Shad. Use a 5/0 to 7/0 Kahle Hook and and set your bobberstop at approx 5 foot depth. Use a 1 to 2 0Z Egg sinker to keep your bait from moving around too fast. Naturally fish water that you know holds Flatheads. If your bait brings the KatBobber into too shallow of water, Recast back into the target depth. That time of night is when them Flats like to cruise around looking for the Bluegill and other baitfish in the shallows. They are looking for the "ALL YOU CAN EAT BUFFET". You may want to scrape some scales off on one side of your live bait as to put some enzymes into the water to help them find that bait. I prefer to hook gills and shad through the lips. Come up through the bottom and then the top lip. I believe that it will improve the hookset %. Watch your Katbobber action, you will definately notice when your bait gets a case of "I gotta get outta here attitude". After Dark use a glow stick in the Bobber. Now this is FUN fishing. I usually try and put out 3 poles when I am fishing like I have described. If there is a Flathead in the vicinity, You will have a hookup soon. When you get a Fish taking the KatBobber across the water or burying it you can sset the Hook if you like or Just start reeling as the KatBobber has already Hooked it by the design of the bobber itself. Enjoy & Good Luck: Gene PS: Next Post will be Blues and then Channel.
