    Hello all,
    Been a long time since I've been on here but I'm back and ready to go fishing. I usually stay off this site when I know I can't go fishing to spare myself the torture of wanting to go and not being able to.
    I am headed down with Smokin99 to Blacks Friday afternoon and plan to night fish for my favorite fish (Flatheads). My other friend from Spartanburg plans to join us. We will be putting in at Blacks on Moultrie and try a few spots. I'm guessing I've missed the spawn, so the fish I'm thinking have left the shallows. We want to fish near river channels to hit both depths to find the pattern.
    Does anyone have a suggestion that might be of use?
    I'll post a complete report without the lies when we return and hopefully with pictures too.
    Thanks,
    Jonathan

    What makes you think you missed the spawn and what makes you think the fish will have moved deeper? Good luck let us know how you do.

    Well, in years past, May seems to be the transition month where the cats will be heading back from the 3ft mudlines and back towards 20ft waters near channels. Granted this has been a colder than normal year and this could have delayed or prolonged the spawn, but on a hunch and only a hunch, I am going for the nightime bite in areas that will eventually lead me back in the diversion canal by morning.
    Unless there is a better idea.......
    I'll let you know how it turns out.
