    Which Car dealership? And, do you know if they were wading or staying on the bank.

    The flatheads stay in the upper james all year long. Isn't there any dams on the Dan River to keep them here?

    When you are going to South boston the bridge on the way has been a good hole in the past for some of the people that i know, and ive also witnessed some nice flatties out of there, but since they have been doing all that work i haven't heard of anyone catching a whole lot near that bridge. I have been hearing good things about behind the nissan place, but i think to get to the best spot yall are right, you have to wade out. I plan on fishing down the river a little bit from the bridge pretty soon where I saw those guys pull those flatties out, Ill let you know a couple of days out and maybe who knows just see you out there.
