    Does anybody know if flatheads spawn the same way as they do in the rivers as in june and july?? Two weekends ago there were 7 flatheads 30 plus caught and then the folowing two weekends not even a bite. Thanks

    Welcome Andy. The weather plays a big role in the bit.

    I havent been able to hook a flathead yet this year, right now where i live they have moved to gravel piles, rocky banks, brush piles and creeks to spawn. After the spawn i think ill have better luck.

    I fish in southern Ga. and I went flathead fishing two weeks ago and didn't catch anything. I have in the past caught flatheads during this time of the year though. "Experts" say they spawn this time of year and are hard to catch.
    Who knows? I just get out there as much as I can and most of the time I catch them. Lots of water just came down the river from the tropical storm so that might have been it.

    put the rods down get in the water and run your arm under every hole you can find.them flatheads are biting you just got to put the right bait in front of their face.

    i am having the same problem out here. i went from catching 15 to 20 a night to zero in the last month. i think they are on the spawn and should hopefully be coming off of it soon. the water temps are nice and warm so i know they are going to be active pretty soon. i just hope they come off of the spawn in the next few weeks. i am starting to go crazy here.

    if they are spawning, the males wont feed till they're done, they only will eat something if its threatening their eggs. the females should be around feeding though. like poisonpits said, try a little grabbin:tounge_out:
