    Anyone caught any good flatheads around cumberland city lately. I have never caught one over 5lbs. I am thinking about trying for flats instead of blues this weekend for a change.

    Chris, its not impossible, but it will be very tough to catch flatties this time of year. They are just not very active when the water temp dips below 55. if you get the bait right in front of them they may take it, but they are not out hunting until the water gets a little warmer. The best time for flatties is during pre-spawn. Give me a holler in a few months and I'll take you on a Cumberland flathead safari.
