    My catfishing has been really slow this year a couple of good channels here and there...I'm glad to get out of the house now and then but i can't no for the life of me catch a flattly like i did last year....Last night on the ohio i caught a 5 lb blue and that was it. I'm not sure whats going on, I mean im using the default bait of blue gill cut and alive, im fishing after bends structures i fished from paint creek all the way to the ohio....I think im doing something wrong, Anyone have any good ideas for me, I'm gonan try again tonight

    Just don't give up, I have gone months without catching any flatheads. They have got to be one of the weirdest fish in my opinion, sometimes you cant get out of them, and sometimes they just vanish. Your bait set up sounds good, are you fishing with floats, or on the bottom?
