Good catch on the flathead.

The kids attitude is fine now but to reduce his chance of major disappointment in the future I recommend an Ohio State hoody! :)

I would suggest 1/0 -2/0 kahles with reels out of gear and clickers on.
They won't feel a properly rigged slip sinker and you will have the option of when to set the hook. Circle hooks work better...

I must be old fashioned. I use a scale. In olden days that is how the weight of objects was measured. The new digital ones are about half the size of a pack of cigarettes.

Made up that rig for a fella 4 years ago. Also built knotless bobber rig for flathead.

Sometimes it takes several trips to locate and catch flathead.
If it was easy there wouldn't be bass fishermen :)

Many moons ago I caught a 66 pound flathead. That fish is why I
tell guys with trophy flathead to struggle with big flathead for as many good pix as they can stand.

Learning to fish for flathead is a slow process for many reasons.

Sometimes we are doing everything right and these cats just do not feed.
Congratulations on your flathead!
