    I was wandering what kind of holes do you guys look for when going for colder water blues and flatheads. i'm not talking like november, december but like late september through october? do you just look for depth, or just fish the same summer holes? i was thinking of ledge fishing as a possibility but wanted to ask first. also do you want fresher baits or already dead?

    i would say for blue deep holes would be best and ledges would be the best place i think i have been doing some ledge fishing and is working pretty good for me fresher the better always for bait and for flatheads they like the mud flats and under cut banks the barry them selfs in the mud for winter

    in september and october the flatheads go on a feeding frenzey to fatten up for winter cut banks are good anything with a straight bank and brush this is some of the best flathead fishing
