    I have caught some a little farther down around waynes landing and behind river landing, but never caught a flathead up passed the deep bottom bridge.

    flatheads are everywhere............ponds, lakes, rivers, in my freezer...........lol.........most of the time people arent rigged for them and its always the one that got away..........one good view of a flathead......think of him as a noctournal bass! it helps me from time to time!:wink:

    Care to specify on any bodies of water in durham to try? Only place I really fish for flatheads now is the neuse, but I am not to far from durham. Always liek to try new spots.

    well there is a member of boc that has told me she has caught flathead out of little river lake........knowing the species i would be willing to bet there in the little river! and im for sure theyre in the lake........cant promise any size.........and the fact the lake is open only during daylight hours would make it a challange to catch a big one!
