I fish mostly lakes and catch mostly channels. I would like to target flatheads and I have three lakes near me that have flatheads in them. The $1000 question is where to drop a line. All three lakes are basically the same, except for the size. The deep end near the dam is about 30 feet and the dam is covered in riprap. I will assume these large rocks would be considered cover, and would be a good place to try, but I never see anyone fishing the dam at any of these lakes. I would like to hear some comments about the dam for flatheads. Next, the upper end of all the lakes is a large mud flat. Just a large area with no elevation change, no channel, no logs, nothing just 1-3 feet of water for a large area. I do catch channels on the flats. Would flatheads use these areas at night too feed too? Theres nothing I would call cover except for the one lake that has some flooded willows when the waters up. Between the flats and the dam is just some open water for the most part. The lakes are old, and not much for channels running through them, there are some areas with rocks, but no standing timber or anything else really. If anyone fishes lakes for flats and is willing to share some ideas as to where to look for flathead, i'm willing to listen :big_smile: Thanks in advance!
