    Does anyone fish hillsdale for flats. Just got boat ready to go. Need some pointers on where to fish and what methods work the best. Thanks Kyle

    Well never really caught any flats at hillsdale not that there not there however with the air temp in the teens at night IMO I would much rather fish at La Cygne Powerplant lake as the water temp never drops below say 65 or 70 degrees So the flats will bite year round there not that they might not at hillsdale though.

    This is just my two cents worth hope it helps.

    Welcome to the Brotherhood By the way.

    I know there are some pretty nice flats in there my dads cousine brought a lot of nice ones home from there when he was alive. He used mostly limb lines. Never got to find out any of his honey holes. I have fished at the poewer plant lake before for other fish never cats have never had very good luck there but I know you can catch alot of gar at the outlet.
