As some of you know, I am a channel cat guy with some blue cats caught here and there. The lake I fish is not known for "huge" fish, with the bigger channels in the 10-12 pound range and bigger blues in the 20-25 pound range. The lake is definatley not known as a flathead lake, but there are some there. I have caught one around 7 pounds, but a few weeks ago a 44 pounder was caught. I want to start targeting some flatheads to add to my catfish knowledge and here is my question: if you were going to start out pursuing flatheads on a river fed lake, what would you be looking for as a starting point??? From reading post about flathead fishing I have noticed that most guys are fishing live bait and most seemed to be anchored up, and this is the approach I plan to take. This is different than most of my channel catfishing which is trolling, though I do a lot of anchoring at night to target feeding channels in the shallows. I am looking forward to your responses.
