    BINGO! Not sure of the order either but it's hard to argue with those five. And it took a KENTUCKIAN to nail it. Good job Walter.

    No fair! How come all the good reservoirs are all bunched up in Harrison and Guernsey counties??? The closest one is probably about 150 miles from me :(

    Lets not forget about the ol' Santee Cooper!!!.... It is more known for blues but has a outstanding flathead population aswell. The only reason for it being known as a blue cat hot spot is because they are easier to catch.

    I have to agree here too. If they were in order, I would have to move Tappan up the list

    Santee is in South Carolina I believe. About 700 miles to the south.

    I really appreciate how speedy everyone was getting back to me on this...There were some surprizes on there for me that i wasnt expecting tho...I agree with the one post that its a shame they are all in guernsey and harrison counties...Like an hour and a half drive for me....guess ill have to plan a trip out there in the next week or two since its flatheading season finally!

    They're definitely worth the drive David. Get there early and scout yourself a good spot. Then HANG ON TO YOUR RIG!

    Caesar's Creek is supposed to have a pretty good flathead population.
