So lake dixon in Escondido Ca. is rumored to have a few flatheads running around. I can't prove this for a fact, but my buddy said he saw the biggest catfish he has ever seen in 30+ years of fishing that lake this week. He mentioned that it's head was just wide like a shovel, and that it didn't look like a channel cat. He saw it near the pipe that pumps freshwater into the lake. That part makes sense to me since i know flatheads like current. My questions are: How do you target a flathead in a lake envorinment? What type of rig would you use? What type of bait? FYI flatheads have never been stocked at Dixon lake. However they have found other types of fish in the lake that were never stocked either. I have spoken to rangers there, and they have told be about how some fish get piped in via the pipe that fills the lake. I guess it comes straight from the river so baby/small fish could in theory be transfered. Any advice would be cool. I know it's prolly a long shot, but i think it would be pretty ballin to catch a flathead in a lake where they are not supposed to be. I catch channel cats there all the time, that's a no brainer at this point. Flats on the other hand are new territory for me.
