so you said to ask so here it is. i caught my first and only (so far) flat head at bartlet up where the river comes in at the no wake buoys. the lake was about 75% percent full . it was 12:30pm. the fish took a 3-4 " gill on the bottom. Since then haven't had much luck with flatties . i've changed game plans several times since then . now i'm trying late night float presentations . gear wise it's very hard switch chinook gear to flatie gear. so what i'm wondering is float fishing gills or fishing bottom has been more productive for you. i been killin channels but can't buy an other flatie for the life of me. any food for my thought.
