I wish I could be more open when I catch a nice flathead, and tell the exact spots where these fish come from..But we are talking the internet and news travels fast....I will share a experience on why I dont. Appx 5 years ago, on a different forum, it was a ohio forum..I posted pics of a nice flathead I caught..I did not tell the location, but the pictures gave it away...If I remember right this was on a saturday and the following monday I was on vacation for 2 weeks. I was all fired up and looking forward to fishing the spot I had found several times...The spot was fairly secluded but could be seen from a bridge. I had driven over this bridge every day for many years and never ever saw anyone fishing this spot, it was a bear to get to and I had to cut a path which took several hours to do. Well on my first day of vaction I arrived at my spot and found several cars parked there, I walked out on the bridge and sure enough my spot was packed with people, kinda pissed I went home and was going to back the next day. For 2 solid weeks, every day of my vacation there were people fishing this new spot I had found, I never got to fish it during my time off. And the people fishing it confirmed that they found out about it from my post on the other forum, they even posted pictures of the big flats they got there. The spot was never the same after that, I can only assume they took the big flats they caught out of there home, cause I think I only caught a couple fish there in the next year or so...I dont even bother fishing it any more because you can see it from the bridge and it looks like a trash dump now, and there is a path leading to it big enough to drive a semi down.
