What do you think this Catching Flatheads on Trout Chunks and Live Sunfish video?
Fished the Schuylkill recently after a bit of rain, water had some color and flow and the flatheads were biting pretty well. Didn’t catch any monsters but caught a good number of fish with the biggest being close to 24lbs. I caught 3 rainbow trout for bait while Tan brought a bucket of sunfish, the fish didn’t have much preference. Hopefully there will be some more flathead vids in the near future, last year I didnt publish and flathead vids because the action was pretty beat most trips, most of the season was drought conditions and the catfishing was poor. This year things seem to be a little better.
The rods and reels I used in this video:
Conventional Reel (1st fish): Penn Squall 12amzn.to/2q9ZCAU
conventional Rod: st croix Mojo Musky 8′ MHFamzn.to/2r9w2j1
Spinning Reel (2nd fish): Penn Clash 5kamzn.to/2qHGBIL
Spinning Rod HF: 7′ st croix mojo inshoreamzn.to/2qcOgeu
For tying leaders and shock leaders I recommend buying the cheap bulk spools of mono, it is what I use for Flatheads, Drum, Stripers and everything else:
The 2 different braids I use here:
30lb Sufix 832 on the spinning:amzn.to/2r9WlG7
