    Any time is a good time to go. The best time is fall. Seems all the big ones get caught during fall.

    Welcome to the BOC brother.. Hope you get a good one this year!

    you can figure end of april for cats to start running. this is best time for numbers of fish

    late fall late sept through early oct is best time for size

    I am hoping to get up there next week any suggestions on what to try? I am new to the area and flathead fishing but after seeing some of the monsters on this sight I want to get hooked!
