    Fish right out in the CHANNEL. Or at the beginning or end of a hole.

    I think channels like heavier current and aren't so interested in blowdowns as flatties.

    that said, where I routinely fish there is no flathead. Another thing to point out is that in my state, quite a few people how are avidly into flatheads catch trophy channels, too. these are guys that KNOW where flatheads like to lie---

    so perhaps there isn't much of a difference!?

    (Last time I went to flathead country; I caught a flat and my partner caught two channels).

    Another thought is that I'm a night fishing guy so flats and channels might FEED in similar places but hold in the day in different places.
