    I have heard good things about catching flatheads in Muskingum River, Since that is a big river, what would be the best Area to catch the big flatheads?

    Welcome to the BOC. The Muskingum is an excellent flathead fishery. The closer you get to Marietta the bigger the water and the more numbers of larger fish. I have heard GREAT things about the McConnelsville pool though.

    Hey Bobby Lee

    I generally fish scioto, griggs, alum, and I used to live up north around mansfield area, so I know a lot of good places there. I really want to hit up the muskingum, and darby sometime soon.

    Dan don't listen to them, there are no flatheads in the Muskingum. I'd try buckeye lake.

    My state is confusion. I caught that there fish with you as I recall. You told me that the orange spawning flathead was the only catfish with scales.... gotta have scales you said cuz they's so big and the flathead captains is promoting C.O.W.L. Catch, Ogle, Weigh and release. I just never unnerstood why they have more than 1 scale? How many scales they need for us to weigh em'?
