    James, there are plenty of places close to where you reside to catch monster flatheads. The MWCD Lakes are a great start. The Ohio River out of Steubenville is another. The Tusky River like mentioned has a good supply of flatheads. Or if you wanna travel south alittle more... The Muskingum River is a good place to fish as well.. You may have to travel alittle, but if wanting to chase flatheads, your gonna put some time in it anyways!:wink: Goodluck in your pursuit! rollo
