I was wondering on one of my last fishin' trips about what types of hooks I should use when tryin to catch flatties, if different at all from other cats. When I am using live fish such as shad, blugill, or creek chubs, should I use circle hooks or what? OR When im using cut bait such as bluegill, perch, or whatever, what hooks should I use. I find that I only have luck w/ circle hooks when the fish are real agressive w/ their bites, depends on what kinda night it is. Also, I use an Abu Garcia 7000C3 with the baitclicker ON if that makes any difference in what kinda hooks I should use. SO, what do u think, what kinda hooks on what types of bait do yall use for flatties or does it make a difference.
