While bass fishing on the Meramec River near St. Louis, I landed this little flathead using a small silver spoon. We were fishing off a gravel bar in a couple 4-5 foot pools below riffles. First time I’ve caught a flat on artificials. Surprised the heck out of me but it was a blast on that ultralight rod! I know it’s possible but has anyone had success catching flats (and other catfish for that matter) on artificial baits?
