    hello, I am a brand new member. I have always wanted to catch a big cat. I got a boat and time, so I'll be asking questions of ya'll...that is if you'll help me out. I don't want anybody's hole, just want to know techniques. I live in Pike Co. so I got rivers to fish.

    I've been reading up on it, but I'm still unable to break my unluck. My dad has started juggin' and has done well, but I want to hook into some with rod and reel. First, How do most people fish for flatheads? Come up behind a structure anchor and drop right down into it? Is water depth important? I got more but I'll hold off for now.

    First off, Welcome Jeremy. When we fish for flatheads, we usually anchor upstream from structure and fallen timber. Then cast back to the timber as close as possible if it is visible. We use cut and live shad. I prefer fresh cut, center section of large shad. We toss it just upstream from their hiding places so that the blood and oils will pass right by them. Sometimes it only takes a matter of minutes. The flatties are really firing up around here. I've been catching them in as shallow as 3' of water at night.

    Yes, live or fresh cut blue gill, shad, creek chubs, and shinners. Flatheads get more agressive at night. Remember, the bigger the bait the bigger the fish.
