    Hello Everyone! I am new and looking for some useful information on catching flatheads in a Lake. I live in Nashville, TN and fish Percy Priest lake as often as possible usually all night long. I normally fish in 15 to 20 ft deep of water with live bream over structure. I just drop straight down over the structure and put the rods in my rod holders. I have yet to catch the big one but I know with persistence and the right timing eventually something has to give. Any helpful tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Paul... Welcome to the BOC!

    Sounds like you got it goin your way. The only thing I would do different is to anchor away from the structure and cast into it using slipfloats. Flathead are easily spooked, and even a footfall on a carpeted deck is amplified in the water. It's best not to be right over top of a flathead.
