    There's alot of big flatheads caught in the Waccamah every year, from the ramp on rt 904 south to the SC border. NC has seen fit to allow shocking on that river because of them, but you can't see to shock at night.

    I've caught several in the 12 to 20 lb range, and yes warmer spring tems will kick in the bite.
