My brother and I have been trying to catch flatheads and just do not seem to be able to get it done. between the two of us we have landed maybe 10 to 20 flatties all summer long. We have been out just about every night and still nothing. we have tried everything we could read. I am about to give up the look for them and start fishing for things like channels and bow fins. We went fishing for bow fins last week and they were loads of fun. They move like a snake on land and are stronger then sh!t. We caught 20 or so about 3 feet long, and lost a little over 20. In one day we caught more bow fins then the flatties we fished for all summer long. The bad part about flatties is while fishing for them and catching nothing I have seen them swim right up to the boat as if we were not even there. So I know we are in the right area but just do not seem to be able to catch them. Do not get me wrong I will still try and catch me a good flatty but I am getting tired of all the none hitting. Maybe this weekend well yield better results. I hope to hit white river in one of three places Raymond and west st drop, up near west side or out at the 30th street drop. If someone has a better place to go I am listening and willing to try anything. I am going to take my bass tracker crappie pro out. It has a 50hp motor (not jet) does have a lift plate for the motor. I can get into 6 to 8 inches of water. To bad the prop is busted up but it still pushes the boat and plains out.
