"Location for members to share their success and failures" First off, I am joking about the stinger thing. But, I did get stuck by the pectoral fin of a tiny Channel catfish that made me bleed like crazy. :confused2: On a serious note, my wife and I went fishing for Flathead catfish on the Hiwasse River (TN) over the holiday weekend. During the day we scouted sections of the river for good structure and generally just relaxed. We were able to catch 30+ Bluegills with little effort each evening. We never caught a single Flathead! :sad2: We mostly tried shallow areas adjacent to deeper water with structure. We had baits placed in many different depths. Really, the same thing I always do this time of the year. There were a ton of boats on the water even after dark which may have been a factor, don't know. Regardless, we still had a great trip and I have scouted some very promising areas for next weekend!
