where are the flatheads?

7 posts in this topic

i was wondering if anyone has had much luck lately fishing flatheads on the minnesota.i went out a week ago,had one small one on,lost it.i fished countless snags,all night long.not even a second bite,on any of the baits.

i fished the croix from shore near the dam last night,and we caught one 10.7 pound channel,one small sheepshead,and 1 large sucker.a slow night there too!the water was lower than i have seen it for a long time!

i have caught a lot of channels this year,but very few flatheads.either i have lost my touch,or their not biting that well.any help you can give is appreciated.i fish the minnesota,the croix,and some on the mississippi.i have not fished the horseshoe chain in the summer,only through the ice.thanks in advance,

dan

It's just the time of the year right now...

Once August is here if you start putting lots of time into fishing spots that will give you a reasonable chance of catching fish they will eventually come for you.

spanked em' last night. Couple big ones too. Location and time of day is key.

Obviously I haven't been on the water at all but are the levels coming up a bit at all? Recent rain doing anything to the river?? And my assumption would be the bite as well.

The river is LOW...very hard to navigate a boat right now as I found out tonight.

Definitely has not gone up...maybe shortly after the rain but it is very low right now.

And yes EC nailed this one on the head...location and time are key right now. Look for spots you may normally just zip by.
