I have a free day tomorrow and am considering heading out onto the Kaskaskia and see if I can find some of those ill tempered flatheads. If anybody would be willing to share some geograhical references pertaining to where the hot bite is (if there is any) other than "find the brush piles", and they would be willing to share that info, it would be veryt helpful and greatly appreciated. I haven't ruled out lake shelbyville or coffeen lake though. I am a bit paralyzed by indecision.:confused2: Thanks in advance to ya'll!!
