What size hooks do you like to use for live baiting those big boys, also do you perfer j or circles hooks?
Typically I use a 7/0 j hook. Flatheads like to pick the bait up and mouth it or turn it before trying to swallow. So a circle hook with the reel engaged they feel the resistance and drop the baits. I like a j hook with the clicker on. Let em run on the clicker, point that rod towards the fish and soon as you feel the line pulling tight set the hook.
