    They may be, in your part of the world. Think we have had so much rain lately the water temperature still hasn't got to the point where they get romantic. I believe they will spawn up through August, depending upon conditions.

    What area do you fish in, in Va? Ive been thinking the same thing about buggs island, last few trips have only been blues and we`ve been skunked when it comes to the flatheads. :sad2:

    Bicuit if you are fishing south holston still I fished it today and caught a 7lb flathead out of the wolf creek area. water temp according to fish finder 69.8 degrees. I don't think flatties are on the nest yet here. I am still catching more cats during the day than at night.

    Well, find a rock with a hole under it. Stick your hand in and your guaranteed to learn how they are hitting. Channels tickle, flat heads mash you and a blue just out right cleans your clock. LOL I don't think the rod and reel fishermen are doing too much, but I think it is more to the rain than anything else. The good Lord has put out a lot of water lately.
