    Sorry to repost this twice in a week, but I landed my NEW PB. He was 28.8 Flathead. Caught him again on the bottom with a goldfish. I was trying 5/0 Team Catfish double action hooks for the first time. I was really skeptical of them, since I've always used J hooks. Earlier in the night I had a good run on them and I tried setting the hook, which I know is a big no no, but the J hook in me thought I should. So of course I missed him. But when this fish hit, I saw my pole bending and I kept it cool. I reeled down on him, just as the package directed and got a perfect set right in the corner of the mouth. I couldn't have asked for a better set! I'm now a firm believer in the Team Catfish hooks. Thanks for all the info on this website about the hooks and techiques. :wink:
