How early do you guys start fishing for flatheads in the Spring? The books talk about the winter kill for shad and that when the water hits 50 degrees or so, they start going on the prowl looking for food. Supposed to be one of the best times to score on some big ones or even a lot of fish. I've always waited until the 1st week in May here in Kentucky to start juggin but the water temp is usually around 72 degrees by then. Starting to think I've been waiting too late. Took a trip one year the last week in April and the water temp was 68 degrees, caught 15 fish that weighed over 118 pounds. My best one nighter ever! More proof that I should have started ever earlier. Anyone have a certain water temp they go by or personal experience with this? The same may also be true for Fall fishing. Usually quit sometime in October but maybe I should hang in there right on through November.
