    Gotta remember, white bass or sand bass may be considered a game fish. Not legal to use them in all states!

    if you have white bass in the same system as the flats, USE THEM! in my opinion they are the #1 live bait for flats if they both inhabit the same area. i have used white bass up to 1-1/2lb, just had to add about 7oz of weight. to me the only thing better than white bass is shad.

    white bass are a great bait to use when going after flat heads, also try bream, both of these baits are tough and are favorites of flat heads
