The flathead bite is on in the Ohio River now. Me and a buddy went Tuesday night and set up bank fishing about 100 yards down river from the Ironton,OH boat ramp. We took a bunch of bluegills,chicken livers,shrimp. Our plan was to try to catch some shad with the cast net when we got there but they were nowhere to be found. Rodney did manage to catch a 6" carp in the cast net. I cut him up and used him for bait. We ended up catching several flatties with my biggest being right at 7lbs(avatar pic). It seemed the only thing we could get them to bite good on was the bluegill heads. I'm going again in the morning to try and catch a bigger one...Wish me Luck,you all know I need it!!!:roll_eyes: :big_smile: :lol: All fish were CPR'ed also!
