    Buddy and I went on an all night Quest for Flathead and we found them. :wink: We had some awesome Green sunfish and some huge Goldfish. We fished hard all night and found our fish in shallow water on a rip-rap bank. We caught 11 between 5 and 17 pounds. I broke Two off That where a lot bigger then anything we landed, but man they were hard to get up and out of the Chunk rock we were fishing. I lost a lot of tackle but man it was a blast!!!!
    We didn't have a camera and my phone was on the blink, but I did get a shot this morning of the seven we kept to eat.

    Good info from Maddcatter, live bait would be your best bet for Flathead. Green sunfish are hard to beat, but the live well was full of Crawldad parts and pieces the flatties had been eating!!!
