Hi Everyone. I was wondering how large of carp you can use for going for flatheads. I have a pond close to my house that has plenty of them but they are all about 12" to 14". I'm thinking they are to big to use whole, but I'm thinking about maybe using them as cutbait. Even if I was to use them live I'm thinking it would be hard to keep them weighted down since they pull so hard for their size. Also alot of them apear to be cross bred with koi and golfish. It's the wierdest thing I've ever seen. I've attatched a couple of pictures so you can see the size of them. Thanks everyone for the great info, this is my first time posting and have been creeping around for about a month or so now soaking up all of the great tips.
