    Welcome to the BOC. Bluegill should be a pretty good bait for heads.

    I have not been there in years, my cousin and I used to go there alot. We never caught a flathead but did good on Channel cats.
    We used to fish off of 799 not far past the marina. If you where looking at the Clendening map I think it was around the bridge by Brushy Fork Bay. I would try under the bridge or a little after the bridge is a point where you used to be able to park on and fish there. You have the right baits we would fish with no sinkers on our line and just throw the bait out as far as we could. We learned a trick from a couple of guys fishing under the bridge one night. They would throw out their line fishing with the bail open they would put a few stones in the bottom of a beer or a pop can. They would put the line over the tab of the can. When a fish starts to run it will tip the can over and the stones make a rattling sound. It is a good fish alarm it will even wake you up if you are dozing off.
    Good Luck let us know how you do
    Joe

    You can try to fish the bridges on 799. Try casting straight out from the corners.....it will put you close to the channel edge. Lots of flatties are caught out there, but haven't been hearing about any lately. If you know where Chaney's Rock area is, that is a good place to try also. Gill's are great baits to try at the lakes, but chubs and goldfish will also do you good. I would recommend you bringing goldfish with you though not buying them at the local bait shop if you use them:roll_eyes: Let me know when you will be out there, I might be heading there myself.

    i think the baits youve been told are the right choices, i would use strictly creek chubs as big as you can get. the 799 bridges are a good area and try fishing the corner back in by the boat ramp off of st rt 799. ive heard its shallow but a creek channel runs near the bank back in there and holds good fish. ive fished clendening 6-8 times this summer for flatties and havent landed one myself, however a good fishing buddy i met out there (BILL) has caught some big ones over 40 lbs. he uses BIG bluegills only for bait and spends the entire night on the big bridge off of 799, he fishes right over the side of the bridge and casts near the marker bouy thats out a little from the bridge. Let me know how you do !!! Good Luck !!! i mainly catch channels at the lakes , im not a lake flattie guy, i can catch a few on the Tusc River though :roll_eyes:

    Welcome to the BOC sound like you got the right bait.you want to try crushing your bluegills and throwing them on bottom has always worked for me.
