the 78lb state record came from there too. i fished that lake 4 days and caught nothing,lol.
Most of those Flatheads came from the Kaskaskia River below the dam at Carlyle.
Yes most of those flats came from the area below the spillway. I have been thinking about heading down that way soon and giving it a try for some flats. They are working on the gates so I dont know how good it will be. the last time I was there the water was being dropped so I can only hope that some nice flats got up there this year.
those are definitley some nice flatheads.
Do you see the "ten pound white bass" on there? I think that'd be a new world record. Maybe they oughta check their ID on that.
I am going to head to the dam in the morning. east side right up next to the dam (if I can get it with out to many people there) I will take the camera and see what happens...anyone who might get the chance and wants to try for some flats see you there.
It looks like they are taking the fish home:angry: . I wanted to take a trip and fish in between Vandalia and Carlyle lake. But it looks like people are doing too much comercial fishing in that river.
They do have Blues in that part of the Kaskaskia dont they?
Some nice fish in those pics!
SAVE YOUR FUEL not a single flathead nor catfish of anykind !!!!!!!!!!!!! I dont think you could have bought a bite for catfish below the dam today..... The water is down again. its at least 4 feet below where it was last week. they are still working on the dam. i did manage to catch some decent sauger down by the swinging bridge.
well if anyone is doing any good fishing for flats let me know I AM IN NEED OF A FIX BAD !!!!!!!
I fish the east side of the dam all the time. So far this season I have caught alot of channels, white bass, crappie, drum, 6.2 lb gar, 25lb/20lb/10lb big head carp, 9lb common carp, and 1 yellow belly cat. I mainly use nightcrawlers at the dam and cut shad. The fish seem to hit more on the nightcrawlers more than anything though. That and I catch all the crappies/white bass on jigs, and minows.
