    well i know most flathead fisherman dont start till may or june like my partner jack love but as far as me i catch nice flaties in late march and april on small waters like the ark river in barton county and the smokeyhill river above kanopolis but also catch alot of ten pound channels in this time and also have fun catching big carp prespawn with night crawlers
    like to know when you guys like to start fishing for flaties

    I start in late March on the Arkansas river south of Wichita. I like to get an early start to see how much the river has changed and to find the new holes before everybody else does.We will see how early it starts to warm up this year and see what the rain is like.Hopefully all is in our favor and it turns out to be a spectactular year.
