    any info would be very helpful as I've been trying for about 9 years to catch that elusive flathead and the best I've done is a 2 pounder.:angry:

    I would try along the bank in punta de pesca it's south of barlett flats and north of s.b. cove campground. You cant miss it, you are on a dirt road from s.b. cove and about half way to bartlett flats you are there. Its the place where alot of people camp out.

    You should have your lines out for flats before dark.

    Make sure you have plenty of time to catch your baitfish prior to nightfall.:wink:

    If u have a way to transport baitfish, I suggest going to rattlesnake cove and catching yourself some bluegill... They are more plentiful there than anywhere I have ever seen before.

    Hell if you had a cast net you could probably net roughly 50-100 of them =P
