i was just wondering if anybody started fishing deep water for flatheads when the water starts warming. i fished a spot last year and done real good with the flats in deep water after sept. this area has structure and i am still marking fish on the structure. i think this may be a wintering hole for them. ive tried for blues there several times this winter with no luck. i see alot of people fish shallow water before the spawn. i didnt know if i could catch them before they move up for pre spawn in this deep area. i fish in lakes mostly. im thinking these fish are still there but dormate. they seem to slow down when temps got down to low 60s. so is this the temp i should wait on before tring them.
