    I fish the Savannah River most of the time when Im not at Santee. I normally fish the area from around Hardeeville to Port Wentworth and have never caught a flathead........dont know why they are not in there. Plenty of blues and channels but no flatheads. I know they are in Clarks Hill resv. but not down this way.

    Kevin I have caught a few Flatheads in the Savannah River around Millet Little Hell area. Most of the time its Channel Cats though.

    Kevin, anywhere down that way is pretty good for blues as well. Most are in the 5-12 pound range. Try the deep bends with fresh bait. If they are feeding you'll usually catch them within 10 minute of anchoring up. I never have caught great numbers, but can usually catch a few. A friend of mine caught a 52 pound blue near the 301 bridge a couple of years ago. I never have caught a flathead in there, but I'm sure they are there. I usually fish further down around Johnsons or Cohens Bluff
