Had a buddy come down interested in trying for flatheads. OK? Went out evening to catch some bream for bait off rip rap. With 5 in the bucket got hung, so I thought. 5 mins later landed a 15+ lb flatty. Assuming he ate a fish that had just hit the grub not the grub himself. Both good stories. 6lb test in an ultralitre was a pretty cool fight. Sadly only flatty we saw. Late 2 decent channels fishing the little bull run into the night.
I want to learn how to catch the cats myself. Hopefully going to go try it out this week one night. I was going to use shad but will also have to try some perch also.
Random question, as Ive read conflicting info over the years. Can "bream", perch, bluegill be caught in a cast net? I was always told you had to catch em with line and hook and then you could use them as bait? Just curious more then anything.
