I posted this about 2 years ago and thought with all the new people around and the voracious appetite for Flathead information that I would resurrect it.
Enjoy!


Since we are talking fish, maybe it's time for school! If you want to catch a fish you gotta think like a fish. Ok, I'm a flathead.... not a fathead a flathead. It is getting dark and I arise from my daylong slumber. I've been laying on the down current side of a log all day trying to get some rest out of the current. By Golly, I am hungry, I wonder if the drive through is open? I think I'll head to the head of the hole, stretch my tail a little and see if the current brings anything tasty down. Hmm... I am still hungry. Where them tasty baitfish at? I bet they're nosed up to some structure or hidin in the bushes. They can run but they can't hide for I am the supreme ruler of the water. Let's check that tree that comes in the water there. I think I see some fish hidin up there near the bank. Hey, look at that dummy shad, he's just out there thrashin around like it's nothing, I wonder if he's hurt... yup I smell blood! Dang I'm hungry! There he is, he doesn't even act like I'm here.... Bam! Got you you little bugger! Ouch What the H%$#!? There's a pain in my jaw! I'm gonna run away from here Dang that hurts! OWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!! What's that light?!!?!?!?! Elizabeth I'm coming to join you! NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! it's a fisherman! What's he doing in the shallow, they usually plunk crap out in the middle!

That's the life of a flathead. Luckily, this one was caught photo'd and released.

Yes, Flatheads go shallow in the night.

True, I have caught them in less than 2 ft of water.You need to put the bait out and be patient.Also be quiet as they are easily disturbed when in the shallows.Thanks.
