I have a question about my luck with flathead catfishin'. I don't have a boat that I can get out on very often, so I do lots of my fishin' from a few docks where I have some pretty good luck fishin' on the Ohio River. Pretty good luck with blues and channels, but not flatheads. I fish with cut shad whenever I can get my hands on it, otherwise I just use nightcrawlers. I fish pretty far out in the river too. Any replies to why flatheads are so rare fishin' the way that I do.
