Flathead Tips?

 Going for flathead with a friend on the weekend for first time, any tips on what line, rig etc to use? I have a Sedona 3000, hoping that will be a good combo option

I mostly use soft plastics for flathead, squidgy flick baits with a slow jerky retrieve like a prawn skipping along the bottom. I have also caught plenty on hardbodies bounced along the bottom.

 Yea chocs spot on with the above comment, just focus on the drop offs, weed/rock edges and wherever there is bait. Move around till you get one then pepper the area with casts. Where there is one you'll more than likely find a few more. Good luck
