    Well, my family just got a new 17 foot Lowe boat, and we were thinking about taking it out on the lake sometime this pre-spawn. Are there any good places around Olathe (I can probably go as far as Hillsdale reliably) that would be good for prespawn flatheads? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Let's go get it stuck on the KAW:) Put in at Eudora and head straight downstream, won't take ya long to come to a standstill(if it's a V). Sand makes your prop nice and shiny;)

    Congrats Barbel, hope you get it out more than i get mine out. I got 2 little ones under 3yrs old so makes it tough on the wife to go fish all day.

    LOL I might have to go down and do that, Charlie. Might take me a little longer to get it stuck though since mine is a flatbottom (mostly) :rolleyes: . I would like to take it out on the Kaw sometime though. Are there any boat ramps that you know of that are close to Olathe or KCK (although thats not really somewhere I would want to leave my car)? And for that matter, are there any spots on the river that you like to fish? Hope Im not asking too many questions.

    By the way, thanks for all the help everyone :)

    The closest ramp on the Kaw to Olathe is Cedar Creek in Desoto. Although you can almost never launch there as the river has to be up for you to be able to get out of the creek and into the river. The ramp in Eudora or the new ramp on Wooden road would be your closest options.
