I know people woho fish for other types of fish wont fish for tehm wile they are spawning. Example they dont want to jerk a bass off the nest cause other fish will quickly eat the eggs. Just wondering about jerking a male flathead off the nest while gauarding the fry will do. How about catching a female full of eggs right before she lays them, will this prevent her from having a successful spawn? I know in states where there is an abudance of flatheads it probably wont matter.
