    i have caught a flathead on a weird little fish called a log perch or something like that. Its a ugly little fish but it worked. Also i catch them on the bait steve throws down after catching one, nothing like pre chewed bait huh:p

    all of the bait ended up that way, we missed a total of prolly 30 fish that day, talk about a bad day. Just 15 minutes more (baitrunner goes off. MISS!!!) ok fine 10 more minutes(Baitrunner goes off. MISS!!!!) then it ended up being 1:30am
