I love the flatheads I/ve caught some real monsters fishing by the bank. Took my two sisters kids, grown men in their early thirtys,a few times and we never got a bite so i say , if we only had a boat we could really nail them. so ricky goes out and buys a 16,000 dollar bass boat and we been going out for over a month but hav/nt caught much of any thing. We been targeting blues and flat heads no luck .I like to think I know what I/m doing but being on a boat is a lot different than bank fishing. I just found this place the other day and been reading and see theres a lot to learn. I would like to meet some one who actually knows the local mississippi but would be glad to take any one out with us though. The way I see it fall is about here and the flatheads should really start biting the blues too but most of my experence is with the flatties. I would appreciate any thing on boat fishing a big river , especially for the big blues,thanks guys.
