I saw the question about flatheads in Alatoona. Yes, they are there. I have a pic of a 13 pounder I caught there this summer. I launched at Cherokee Mills (across from the Little River Marina). Follow the Little River out to the main lake. Take a right (East) heading uplake towards the Ettawa river. Watch the reef markers, there is a long one right at the mouth of the Little River that you have to make a wide swing to get around. The next reef markers on your left (heading uplake) are the ones to look for. They are maybe 1/2 to 1 mile uplake. During full pool this reef comes up to only 4 to 5 foot depth so go in slow. The main river channel runs right along the edge of this reef so there are some really good dropoffs there. I used my sonar and found a good sharp drop. I was able top anchor in 6 to 8 feet of water and with short casts I could cover a lot of different depths. Use your depth finder and use marker bouys to mark the edge. You are really in the middle of the lake and it's real easy to lose the edge of the drop. I used Wal-Mart shrimp as bait. I know 13 lbs isn't much but it's the best I've done so far at Alatoona. PS. He was CPR'd.
