    Flatheads are spawning late at Salt Fork. Caught a small one and eggs came out. So I gently slid the fish back into the lake. This was last week.

    I am fishing with will this weekend at salt fork and am also wondering the same thing...we have heard for atleast 3 flats in the past week full of eggs....are they flukes or did they just spawn that late this year?:confused2:..... hoping to hear some more input from this post before we leave tomorrow...Ide still like to chance it but its a decent haul for us and dont wanna waste the fuel if we are gonna get boned....maybe we will hit clendening if we dont hear much else? thanks for the spawning reports tho guys!

    I don't know what we should do either Dave but Bigfoot and I will meet up you wherever you guys end up. They are a full of eggs but are still being caught, I had a bad night at Clendening with Will not a single fish to my credit and I tried 10 ft from shore on the bottom and 6 or 7 feet down also. We are gonna have a good sized group of people with us so need a location with some room, and let's hope the rain for the past few days turned something on. No matter what I'm gonna remain the Optimist on this trip.:cool2:

    I'm just glad there are no Gar-madillos in Salt Fork to tease us! Lol. It will be a good time. I'd like to land a decent sized cat. The only way I could get a smaller cat than the only one I already caught is to hook a catfish egg. Lol. Jeez I'll keep my fingers crossed lol. :smile2:
