    I am looking for some areas in or around Poweshiek county with any good flathead fishin. Or maybe even the surounding counties if need be. I cant drive to far and i cant rely on anyone to come get me, take me and bring me back. So I am looking for some areas around here.. :D

    what rivers do you have in your area? If I was you I would google earth the rivers in your area and find some bends or find a topographical map of it as well to find depth changes and what not. lemme know what you have around you and I'll help ya anyway I can

    Alot of new members come here, and with a few post they are asking people for good spots to catch flatheads, it goes on in every state.

    I dont know of many people who are gonna give up there spots.

    But with a little leg work, it wont take you long to find some decent spots to fish.

    I would like to apologize for the sound of this response. I was just waking up, and was rather cranky.
