do flatheads prefer structure, or brush in lakes
Yep,you can't go wrong with any type of structure,especially with any kind of live bait.
I agree that structure is key to flatheads any where.
Ive read alot on Flatheads and know from experience if you can find submerged timber they love it any kind of structure is good below dams also flatheads like moderate current not like blues that like stronger current.
BRUSH AND TIMBER ARE CONSIDERD structure.the placment is what determends wherther they will hold fish.fish both with live brimand see what works.flatheads are where you find them.
Structure that holds the most food supply will be the best for flatheads, they are very territorial and prefer not to travel far to feed. Brush piles in lakes would be a great place to start when the crappie start to spawn. You can bet there will be flatheads there feeding on them in the shallows.
Flatheads live in structure, like trees, stumps, and brush piles.
flatties go where the food is. in the daytime they are thick in the cover. at night they get real shallow, harrassing baitfish. i have seen them in 2 feet of water herding perch like cattle.
a few times i have seen them feeding real shallow in the daytime.
this is very true my brother in law gigs for them in the shallows at night and has seen 40- 50lb class but only gigs small ones
