Do any of you build structre for flatheads? how much scouting do you do before the flatheads turn on? and how do you prepare your gear? as for me I dont do much structur building i mainly fish areas i assume the flatheads will be,I love fishing the the most snag invested waters i can find,one of my most productive flathead locations is between a deep hole and a log invested point,it is a large stretch of river that has very little cover but the key thing is it is full of baitfish and when the flatheads are on the hunt this seems to be thier first stop. as far as scouting,i do a whole lot of scouting,i love fishing new locations but i always turn back to fishing area i know well and i know how the fish react to certain situations. as far as getting my gear ready,i just make sure everything is in check,reel are oiled ros are in good shape,hooks are extra extra sharp etc etc..which all of that is a good thing to check for any type of fish you are after. this time of year im like a kid in december waiting for christmas to get here,the flathead is a fish i love to fish for,and if i was able to catch them year round it would be the only fish i would ever fish for............is it may yet?
