I've only been fishing for Flats for about a month. I fish in Seneca Lake in Ohio every weekend and mostly at night. What is a typical Flathead run or bite like? I know most of the Channels I catch just rip the bait real fast a few feet at a time. I've heard that a Flat runs slow and steady? Is this true most of the time, or does it vary? I'm using live gills for bait and ocasionally a rock bass. I sure hope I can catch one before the end of the season. I know they are there because another guy usually catches atleast one every weekend.
