    Hi Everyone
    I am new to the site and am really enjoying it i am from Middletown Ohio and just started flathead fishing in 2007 thanks to a good friend of mine teaching me how, i fish the great miami river between Cinci and Dayton and my largest flat is 35 lbs at night on a gill, but i am interested in learning more about catching big flat's and blues and as far as that goes channel cats.
    i have been carp fishing for years and love it also and my wife is also my fishing partner and i am teaching my wife's nephew how to fish also and he is becoming a very good fisherman also to date his biggest fish has been a 10 lb channel, any tips on tactic's or location's guys?..........Mike

    I am not an expert on cat fishing but i hope this helps out. One main thing for any successful cat fishing especially channels cats knowing your river like your home. one scouting out the river early in the spring finding places where structure is logs jams, timber, rocks concrete pillions of bridges. river curves. also get to know where feeder river and creeks flows into the river your fish. also find out where low dams and bridges are. sand bars gravel bars places where the current is fast and slow. what type of bait fish in prevalent in the river your fish. also find backwater areas on the GMR nice to have you here rick:big_smile:
