    Do you all fish these lakes? Which do you prefer for big flats?

    Piedmont is known for larger flatheads. Although I have seen more flatheads in the forty pound range caught at Tappan. Tappan also has more access for the shore bound angler. My largest caught was at Tappan (47lbs. 5oz.). Piedmont is probably your best bet for a really large fish, If you have a boat to fish from some of the small open bank areas. Piedmont and Clendening are extremely tree lined. Tappan has access all along Route 250. I would have to say numbers to size-Tappan, but for sheer size-Piedmont. Clendening is excellent also. I would suggest you try them all.:smile2:

    I prefer Clendening only because less people than Tappan. As D Weezy pointed out, Piedmont has the size, but I am lost there with the lack of shore access. I like Clendening the best, but am warming up to Tappan as I learn new spots.
