cought my first flathead today. only 1 pound, on a 4/0 hook with 3 crawlers on it. i had a hook right next to it with cut bluegill that had been outside for a day, so that proves to me that the fresher the better when it comes to flatheads. only my first flathead and it was only right over a pound and im hooked. im no longer a flathead virgin:big_smile: will post a pic when i get more batteries for the camera.
