    That place is full of log jams, they are just hard to get to. It is very narrow across, and only deep in some places...

    MARK MAYBE THE FISH IN YOUR AREA ARE LEAVING THAT HOLE BEFORE YOU GET THERE. THEY USUALY LEAVE THIER HOLE OR LOGJAM AS NIGHT FALLS TO SCOUR AROUND THE SHALLOWS PICKING OFF BAITFISH, YOUR NEIGHBOR MAY BE HITTING THEM WHILE THEY ARE RETURNING TO THAT HOLE WHILE YOU MAY BE GETTING THERE AFTER THEY HAVE ALREADY LEFT..........HOPE THIS HELPS

    Hey Mark welcome to to Catfish1...I fish just down the river from you. I fish the Little Sioux and Soldier tributaries. The biologists were saying this was going to be a poor flathead year north of the Blair bridge. We are having good luck this year :)

    We have been hitting the holes early evening and when the shadows start to grow across the river we move to the shallows off the holes. Look for structure in the shallows. Some place the bait fish might move to protect themselves. If you're fishing the wing dykes, try moving to the sand bars below or above in about 2-3 ft of water. There will be a ledge just off the bank...we like to place our bait just off the first drop off. Be patient, the big flatheads are moving... eventually, they will come by. Hope this helps.
