    Is anyone catching Flats on a regular basis yet? I haven't had a chance to chase them yet due to work schedule. When I do go, I catch a few Blues so I am not complaining, but I do like them Flats.:p

    I live in Ohio, and the waters are much to cold up here for any flathead action

    I havent started yet this year and my days off from the office are Sat and Sun. I guess with the snow and cold weather we are getting in Kentucky, those flats are heating up yet. I will be ready for them because I missed the feeling of hooking into a good flathead!

    When I was in Louisiana they were catching 'em while we were duck hunting. Ouchita River. Deep river bends on the insides. This was in January. God bless.

    With the mild winters we have in Louisiana, I forget about the brothers from other states getting snowed in.:) I was on the Red River Sunday and a local news crew stopped and interviewed me at the launch. They were talking to people who were doing outdoors activities when it was going to be below freezing all day. I think it was their way of saying that I was a ding-dong while still being polite. Anyway, I have been catching them here and there, but nothing like it will be this Spring.

    When its not 20 or 30 degrees I try the river and some deep strip pits and spring fed ponds. In the last month I have not caught anything. In strip pits and ponds I have only caught around 20 cats in the last 2 months. We have had a pretty mild winter here in SE Kansas.
