    Tell us what you think. Are the flatheads still spawning or do you think it has to do with the heat or maybe even the lower water levels. Also what area are you in an what type fishing waters are you fishing suck as the river or lake. Let us know your opinions.

    I think we are at the tail end of the spawn. Some areas (rivers) the flats are biting better than others. I only fish rivers for flats and thats my thoughts on them.

    I fish mostly Ohio, Kananwha, and Big Sandy rivers(plus a couple more) and I think it is over for the year. A lot of people I talk with are complaining of a slow bite, but I have been having a pretty good bite, not like April,May and October but a good bite anyway.
