Hey guys sorry if this is a dumb question, but I figured I'd go ahead and ask it. What side of the Markland Dam should I fish? The side where the water runs TO it, or the side that has the water coming THROUGH the dam? I usually fish a spot about a half mile to a mile upstream of the dam, at a nice little pull off by the police department. Theres some shelters and a boat ramp/ and dock there, where as i usually fish off the dock. There isn't a lot of cover in this area, but the current is relatively slow, which I figure the big flatheads would like compared to the swift waters around the actual dam itself. There is another spot that I have fished before with no luck, its over by the Sugar Creek boat ramp, under the bridge on 27. Where the creek feeds into the mighty ohio. There is a lot of structure right around the mouth of the creek, both visible along the banks and under the water by the bridge. The area around the mouth of the creek isn't too deep I'd say anywhere from 8-15 ft deep and it appears to be a pretty sharp drop off into the main body of the river where it's reeeeeaalllly deep. This is a few; 3-5 miles upstream of the markland dam. So I guess the question is this- Should I focus more on the area around the creek mouth? The area around the police department? Or... fish as close to the dam as possible? And if the dam which side? Sorry if I seem a little out of place asking these questions but I have everything in place to pull out one of these monster flatties. And I know they're in the Ohio. I don't however, know which area would present myself with the best chance at landing one of these beasts. Thanks a lot guys for any advice, and if anyone has fished any of these places and would care to offer some first hand insight I would be reallllllly greatful.
