    Seems like the Iowa page has been a little slow with any reports of flatheads....has anyone been having any luck? If so let us know.....who, what and when? Personally I have only made one attempt for a couple of hours and it was out of pure boredom. The conditions of the river were terrible and it was right after a cold front. Other than that, that has been it for me. The rivers have been too unstable for too long to make any better effort than that. Let us know what has been going on!

    No flatheads for me yet. I've been trying for em but have only been coming up with channels. They should be starting up real soon though.

    Three trips no flats. Caught a few channels and a walleye but no flatties.

    Haven't tried for any flats yet but thinking of going to the Minnesota river soon. They are catching a few Flats there.

    Todd, one little one so far. Plenty of channels. This is the best time of year to be out if not the last month too. It won't be long and they will shut down.
