  7. 5 flatheads, a bunch of blues, and a few channels. Live sunfish a few feet under jugs hooked with mustad 11/0 circle hooks just behind the dorsal fin and above the ...more spine. Near steep banks and under cut banks as well as structure were the best places to find them. Water from 3-9 feet produced the best and most fish.

  8. Working structure on the main channels payed off with some nice cats last night. 4-8 foot of water produced the best. 60/40 mix of blues and channels, no flatheads. ...more This was the biggest of the night, although we had a 3 others that were "throw backs" because they were too big to keep(10+lbs) 11/0 mustad circle hooks 2-2.5 foot below a jug

  9. First "big" flathead of the year. This one was caught in 6 FOW on a steep bank with lots of structure. Water is up a little and a slow current. The sky ...more was overcast, windy, temps in the low 60's. The live sunfish was 2' under a jug, hooked just behind the dorsal fin and above the spine with a 11/0 mustad circle hook.
