    Any of the muskingum watershed lakes would be a good place to look for flats.

    Listen to Jason. Try lakes like Salt Fork (My personal fav.) Tappan, Clendenning, Piedmont, and Wills Creek lake. Youre bound to find shovelheads somewhere!! ...Kyle.

    I agree, but they are more in the central part of the state. I haven't fished any lakes in southern Ohio.

    Where in SE Ohio are you. Salt Fork and Seneca are stellar flathead lakes but the real bonanza is the Ohio River. The Muskingum isn't shabby either. Narrow down your geographics and we'll try to save you some gas money lol!

    Hello, just joined the site. I live in Chauncey. I fish the lakes around and the Hocking river. My biggest Flathead came out of Lake Snowden.

    I plan on going to Burr Oak tonight. I have never fished there before. I am thinking about hiking from the dam area and finding a spot. I'm hoping to get away from the small channel cats I have been catching at Dow lake.

    Happy July 4th!!

    Tappan, Clendening and Piedmont are basically in my backyard. They all have nice Flatheads but Tappan probably has more Flatheads and the bigger ones average around 40 pounds. A broken truck has really hampered my catfishing this year but the fish are still there. On one of the very few times that I have been able to fish this year, I had a hold of a really nice fish but it got hung up in the brush and broke off. You really can't go wrong with the Muskingum Watershed chain of lakes.
