I have recently been going to a 184 acre lake called sympson lake. It is located in bardstown ky. The reason that I am telling you this is because when I go fishing there I usually only catch some channel cats and some blue gill. the ocasional rock bass. Now everytime I go I always throw out a line pretty far out there for flat heads. I have never caught anything though. I usually use cut blue gill (normally the head) I wanted to know if my brothers and sisters had any opinion or thoughts on why I would not have even caught one flattie here. I have moved to different places and still know luck. The only thing that I can think of that could be holding me back is the lack of a boat to huntem down. I still think by now one would have happened along and found my blue gill. All of you opinions would be greatly appreciated.
