    I have hooked in to a few above Topeka and in the area around the Topeka boat ramp. I have had better luck in the Lawrence area though.

    I will :wink:

    Let me retract that statement. The Lawrence area sucks for fishing, other than gar and carp. No need to ever fish in the area from Lawrence to lets say Desoto.:roll_eyes:

    I have heard that fishing is good in Lawrence but never fished up there. The question stems from fishing out at the weir. I got my pb flatt head in the slack water but have never fished the current. I know the big blues like current so was hoping to fish it and get into the big ones but did not want to waste my time.:wink:

    I don't think that it would be a waste I have hooked in to a few nice Flats in the current there. So if you did not get a Blue you have a nice chance at a Flat.
