It's a good time to start fishing right now with the waters warming.
4 feet of water parallel with the bank on a flat with wind blowing toward the bank.
Bait 12" off the bottom. Bait can be perch, shad, cut bait, and fresh chicken breast chunks.
This will get blues and channels.
For flatheads I would go deeper long creek channels 12 to 20feet deep and use live bait, perch, mudcat, baby carp and large goldfish set 2 feet off of bottom.
That's what I do in most lakes. Others will have their own methods depending on where they fish.

Then He made the earth round...and He laughed and laughed and laughed!
