A few months ago a buddy and me ran out of spots and ended up at a canal that is fairly large. I was fishing the downstream of a spot and he went upstream and found an area with exposed seaweed and rocks. He was fishing there and kept recasting at a jumping fish he was hearing eventually he figured out which way the fish was going and casted ahead. I wouldn't have beleived it but he caught about a 5 pd flathead. I hear things splashing and moving in the tules when I fish in the backwaters and things jumping in the river and I'm sure there not all but what are everyones opinions on whether these are likely flathead coming up for baitfish?
