When I target flathead catfish I always catch bream and fish them live. I have had relative success this way, hooking the bream just underneath the spine close to the tail. But the last two times that I have fished this way I have had no noticeable action and reeled in to relocate just to find scales missing close to the head of a half dead blue gill. I have had flatheads do this to bream before but have always seen the hit and simply missing the hook up. I am talking no line movement no nothing. It has happened more times than I can count on one hand. Has anybody experienced this? I have thought about rigging the bluegill with a king rig with one hook in the head and a trail hook in the tail but am afraid it will affect the way the blue gill is represented under water. Any suggestions?
