    I fished the canal about a week ago trying for flatheads in the sections between locks 11&12 but all i caught was 2 drum, and 2 big walleye but no catfish. I was just wondering if any one knows what sections of the canal are good for flatheads?

    I've heard of people catching a bunch of Channels out of the Hennepin but I've never heard of anyone catching any Flatheads from there. To be honest I only fish the Hennepin for bait (Bluegills).

    Anybody else fish the Hennepin?

    I tried Lock 21 last weekend. No luck, but a lot of snags under the waterfall. Must be a lot of junk in the water. I really don't like fishing the locks.
