    Get a map at Salt Fork Outdoors and look for shallow water near an old creek channel. There are good cats in that lake.

    Good Luck,

    That is a good spot. You have the right idea. Exact locations are tough to get due to the scarcity of truly trophy size fish. We are all MORE than willing to share area, 1 of which you've heard correctly, and techniques, but to give up a specific spot in this more and more competitive endeavor is asking a little much. I hope you understand, and I pray you practice catch and release and do not practice the art of jugging.

    Good Luck and I am sure you'll see me out there.

    Like I said, get a map and compare the lake contour THERE AT THE BRIDGE AREA YOU MENTIONED (oops1 hit the caps button) to other area. There are some very common keys. :wink:

    thanks for the help i understand that you cant just give away your best spots.by the way i only fish for the sport of it so i will definantly practice catch and release.i will have to get a map like you said and find my own spots now that i have an idea of where to go.hope to see you there and good luck.also i was wondering if anyone could give me a little advice on catching flatheads.what size hooks to use what to use for bait etc.i have caught may channel catfish but have not yet fished for flatheads but i look forward to it.thanks

    Give it a month and a half and I might have you come out with me. I fish saltfork a good bit, and can show you a couple of things.
