    I'm Planning on doing some bank fishing for flat's & wondered If anyone could recomend a spot- from Jaycees on down, that I can park/ camp & do some fishin- I usually rent a boat from the base & set up shop on a sand bar - I havent ventured past the --paddleboat & jaycees landing. I keep hearing about morgan lake though. I want to camp & catch some flats without a boat any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    I just got the word fm the "boss" that theres a couple places there but some you have to hike to, so he said the easiest place is right at the bridge in Jessup by the docks. I'm trying it sunday.

    got skunked but i think it was my fault. I did'nt have enough weight to hold it down. I was using 4 oz and then I used 2 four ozers and still wouldnt hold it still. so 8 oz total is still not enough. Now that particular part of the river is real thin so the water moves thruogh there pretty quick, might not be as bad farther up or down stream where the river gets wide. Good luck

    You really do not want to fish for flats in current anyway. You want to find breaks in the current like anything behind obstruction that can slack off the current. That is primarily where you will find the flatheads. Its hard catching fish in fast current and more times than none you will get the surface type of fish in those areas like stripers.
