    Well it is now August.

    I have just went thru another unproductive month of July, for me July is the worst month of the year...Then the flatheading slowy starts to pick up in August, and really gets good late August and September.

    I have been fishing for so long, I seem to have a 6th sense on when the big flatheads are feeding.

    This 6th sense is not always right, but mostly it is...For the last few years everytime I caught a good flathead 40+lbs I had a feeling it was gonna be a good night before I left the house.

    I dont have that feeling right now, it just dont seem right, maybe it is the weather I dont know.

    I just dont have any confidence that I am gonna get on big fish yet.

    What do you guys think, do you think the big flats are starting to feed good?

    I think the rains will finish it off now. I've only caught one post spawn male so far- the rest were girls. I'll have a better feeling next time out now that the big rain has stirred them up. Just waiting for the bright moon to go away.

    Not sure what kind of vibe I have yet Jack, but I sure hope to find out here soon. Should be getting a pretty nice string of days to give it my best though the wife will be gone for 2 weeks of reserve training so it will be time to give it hell. Now if you can just get that Flattie sense tingling for me the timing would be perfect. LOL:big_smile:

    Jack, I seem to recall you saying in early July, you seldem fish for flatheads in July or during the spawn. I wish I would have listened to you cause the month of July really sucked for me. Finally picked up a 9 pounder today but it's been pretty bad here.

    Yea I believe it's going to be a very good august for flats. Right now the moon phase is playing some small tricks as far as alot of big ones being caught but that will be gone in a few days an then let the fishing begin!
