    Could anyone give me some advise as to where some good spots along the Ohio river are in the area of Boyd-Greenup Co. to fish for flatheads. A long time ago I went to this place, can't exactly remember where it was but I believe would be a great place for flatheads. Right before you get to Raceland Highschool there is a gas station, i believe its a shell mart, you turn up there, go over some railroad tracks and it brings you to a body of water just off the main channel. its was still water and lots of timber, at the time i didn't know shit about fishing and i thought you had to be in the main channel to catch anything so i didn't fish it. has anyone ever heard of this place or know of any others that are good to flathead fish.

    thanks for any help!

    It sounds like the mouth of the Little Sandy River. I have never fished it though.
