    Trey, here are a few tips and three things to look for while fishing the Muskingum. Look for S_man's boat, Catfishrollo's boat and Cats gone wild's boat. Then stay way back and observe them with field glasses. Then do what ever they do. Hope this helps, good luck! lol:eek:oooh::lol::cool2:

    s-man has a few more good ones on me!! he is an expert! do listen to his posts, they are usually useful. jack...i think he knows more about flats then what he lets us all know. maybe we should sit back together and watch with the glasses. he has caught some nice fish himself!..rollo

    Trey, I haven't fished down that way yet. Farthest south I've been is Beverly/ Waterford area. But I am gettin closer LOL. If its anything like it is up here this time of year (close to spawn) Look for wood, logs, undercut mud banks, or steep rocky ledges. Don't be afraid to fish a single big log in 2 or 3 ft of water. Flatheads aint very tall LOL, they can squeeze under most anything or at least get a nose under it. They should be moving well now either spawning or looking for a spot to spawn so get out there. If the dam is deep enough to get a boat near it you can find them there a few times a month looking for shad in all that oxygen rich white water.

    "Flatheads ain't very tall" lmao Skip! Funny, but what a great thought. Thinking like that opens up a lot of possible big cat areas. Thanks for sharing your number one secret. Rollo are you paying attention? :cool2:
