Catching Flathead Catfish On LIVE White Bass In VIOLENT Waters!

The original plan was to catch skipjack, but there was no skipjack to be found. We switched to plan b, which was to catch live bluegill and go for flatheads. We anchored up on the wing wall and caught 7-8 flatheads and 2 channels. I caught a white bass and we used it as live bait–it worked! We caught a 10 lb flathead. White bass makes a great live bait. Be sure to check your state’s regulations regarding live bait before trying it.
