I dont keep a journal anymore, but I know I cant catch flatheads this time of year from the spawn. Last night I went over many pages Of a journal I kept for 17 years. I found a few interesting things. 1- I had 0 entries from appx mid June till mid July, thats why I dont get to excited about fishing right now. 2- August has been my best month for big flatheads, followed closley by september. 3- catch rates went way down starting in mid October, but the fishing could be very good for just a few hrs a day. 4- during years of little rain, may had the best number of flatheads, but not the biggest. 5- the latest in the year I ever caught a flathead was December 3rd. 6- New moon periods were best for nite fishing. 7- full moon periods were good for day fishing.
