    Aaron I see you are from Ky. You have Kentucky Lake and Barkley Lake as well as the Tenn, River and Cumberland River to fish in. I think you are near a haven of Blues, Flatheads and Channels. This is to only name a few. You also have the Ohio River near by.:lol: :big_smile:

    The only place you are going to find blues in Ohio in any numbers is in the Ohio river. The best chance at them is closer to the Cincinnati area. Flatheads on the other hand I would suggest the Ohio, Muskingum, Or Great Miami rivers. Also any of the Muskingum Watershed Conservation District lakes have good numbers of nice flatheads to be caught.

    The best place to find Flatheads is the Ohio river. Second place is the Muskingum river.If you want to learn how to catch Muskingum river flatheads. come to the Ohio gathering, May 18th 19th and 20th. We will be holding our meet and greet at the Riverside shelterhouse.

    I agree with all the above posts even though I don't know what part of Ky you're in.
