    Smith mountain holds good flatheads. Nothing monster'ess on a reg basis. But theres a chance of pulling a 45+lb flattie out of SML. but your going to ave. flatheads in the 8-20lb range with fish 20-35lbs common. Its kinda hard to just give up hott spots. Theres really no such thing as hot spots, just areas that produce fish. You'll just have to get dedicated, get out there and scout it out. Read some reports and get out there and fish. One word of advice that i can give is shallow......
