    Blues are deep big river fish.They swim in big deep and wide expanses of water..When they live in an environment like that yes they are hard to find cause there spread out all over the place..Thats why drifting for blues is so popular cause you can cover way more area..I sure do feel your frustration as I have been having a hard time targeting flatheads..My advice would be get a boat and start drifting..

    My thoughts exactly Les,
    I manage to stumble on a flathead from time to time but have no luck on targeting them...:confused2:

    to add to what Les said, the blue bite is better in the winter. Dec,Jan,Feb are the best months for blues ive found. i have always had to go deep any other time of the year. and it is frustrating, so i feel your pain.
