Nice flathead Craig!
Very glad to see a post from that part of the Tn river . I bought a cabin on Beason Creek back upriver from Saltillo 3 years ago . So far I have caught 5 flatheads in the 40 range and several in the 30s , all have came from the 50ft hole and the 75ft hole close to the mouth of the creek.51,53,55,56,58,60,61,63,67. To many up to 50 to remember anymore. I fish the tn river from Saltillo landing up river tocravens landing and down river to the Clifton bridge. I use nothing but skipjack. Have tried live bait and have never got a bite. All have been caught over the last 5 years. I fish daily if possible. I’m retired and live at the river.
X2 for me. My biggest flat to date was 15lbs. I am eager to fish the big water for fall lunkers but finances and family issues are stopping me. Hopefully I will land one someday to get in this category.I’d like to tell you all about the monstrous, new world record, man eater flattie that I caught recently. But unfortunately, I have yet to break the 25# barrier. There are relatively large numbers of flats in our area but i haven’t yet figgered out how to convince one take my bait and join me on shore...and my hats off to those who are so successful!
