A question was posed to me by one of the members of this forum: What kind of goldfish do you use for flatheads? Answer: Comets aka the Common Goldfish aka Penny (One Cent) Goldfish aka "Feeder" Goldfish you find at Wal-mart, any pet store, or your local bait shop. They work well for me. Some people use Fantailed Comets, but that can get a bit spendy after a while.... For those of you out there that use goldies as bait, what kind do you use? Maybe we can have a consensus.
