    Welcome to the BOC Ronald. For a shallow river you will need to find holes or structure in order to have a chance to find some flats.

    hey bud
    welcome to the boc
    fish on the banks at night if you can, and use a live blue gale or what ever bait fish you can get. you should get them on the banks because at night flathead catfish feed on the shallow water.
    good luck!
