    Welcome to the B.O.C. and AZ!! There is some great bass fishing right where you're boating at Saguaro and Canyon. Roosevelt and Bartlett are also big time favorites, especially for the big cats. Lake Pleasant has a lot of great fishing too, but can be difficult at times to figure out.
    A trip to Lake Powell is something you have to put on the list. It is a bit of a drive, but when you get there you will understand what all the hype is about. Just ask around at the local shops, and definitely check this site to get some of the best info there is as to what is hot, and where.
    Good luck!!

    There's a lot of great fishing out here for many different species. BUT, you won't get to enjoy much of it if you set those JUGS out. They are illegal to my knowledge. Saguaro's not known for it's Flatheads but there in there. I think most people will tell you if your looking for big flats go to Roosevelt Lake but I'm pretty fond of Bartlett too. Good luck and don't forget to set em free. They'll appreciate it, I will, and our kids will.
    Later

    Welcome to Az, good fishing out here. I am kinda in the middle of Saguaro and pleasant. So I fish those places alot. I just recently got into Flathead hunting and its been a slow start but I just bought a boat and got it running so I know it will pick up. Work together.... Eat together lol
