hey, whats everyones choice of best ne. flathead LAKE? sherman? harland? calamus??
i talked to some people at the outdoor show that had an album full of big flathead in it they were from sherman i was also told that branched oak has alot of nice ones in it to
Branched Oak for sure. They are Catch and Release only. They were introduced to help take care of the white perch problem, and uh....they've been feasting for a few years now.
yeah branched oak would be all right if you could get away from all the ski boats i guess go during the week you'd probably be ok
Don't forget about the Tri County canal system. Lots of flats in there, and you always have a chance to hit a home run by catching one over 40lbs any given night.
wheres that at??
some where out west in B.F.E oooh:
The Tri-County canal system starts at lake McConaughy and runs east. It includes Midway, Sutherland, Gallagher, and Plum Creek lakes to name a few. I read that flats in the 20 to 30 lb range are quite common at Gallagher.
We fish Gallagher's and Midway quite a bit. In 2005 we did real well catching some over 20lbs, biggest was 47. You just gotta look for the spots where there are current breaks and stuff like that. They're in there.
i'd go with sherman, its got half the boating traffic as calamus and the fishin is twice as good. but if you wanna catch some real big fish you gotta fish the river.
im with ya on that one:wink:
the river all the way and please let go all the big ones they dont get that big bye eating them thanks cpr
I heard they have recently been pulling in some nice ones at the inlet at Johnsons Lake, some nice flatheads in this lake. Luck
i know harlans got some good flattys in there, fish off the rocks or theres an inlet south of alma too
johnsons lake has some big one in there if you can find them.also ive never caught a flathead a branched oak,maybe someone can give me some pointers/hints to where they are.
i would guess drift i dont know though talk to fishjunky i think he goes over there alot... before he discovered that the river was funner
Johnson Lake does have nice flatheads. Try August with live bait like shad, bluegill. the inlet has the best action.
I 2nd this respose, but I prefer the Missouri & Platte Rivers when it comes to targeting trophy cats.
Hi Catfisherman! My name is Mark Siebrass. Just joined the BOC. I'm from Hastings, Ne. I have 2 boys, ages 2 & 3. Can't wait to teach them the sport of fishing, especially for those catfish.
Thanks BOC for such a great forum!!:big_smile:
