I recently went out with a friend on the lower colorado river here in Blythe Ca. I was very surprised to find that he went to a place where the water was 28 foot deep and the point created a very fast current. We had flathead bites all night and brought in 4 small 2-12 pound flatheads. I have always fished the backwaters near tullies and such as that is the popular thinking. I was very surprised by the decent bite we got. Anybody else ever heard of targeting these areas I understand they might hide/sleep in these areas but I figured they all moved to the shallow (blugill prime) areas to feed.
