    I fish flannagan hard for flatheads but this year havent had much luck after I got out of the marines in 06 I spent almost a whole summer over there (almost every night) and kinda found a little patern of sorts for the lake (its a general sort of location and flathead structure area) anyway try to find a cove that is between 10 and 20 feet deep with some heavy cover in it and a feeder stream at the head of it (theres only two coves like this on the entire like trust me I have been everywhere on that lake trying to find these things... one is about a mile above the marina going towards cransnest the other is over near skeetrock within sight of the bridge.. this is a deep cold lake for the most part so I mostly fish the shallower coves and what wooded structure I can find on the cransnest side of it which is where I usually do the best... if you dont have a boat hit up cransnest campground and fish the dock or walk around the point to the old road use live shad or big creek chubs
