Caught a couple of eaters today in the shallows (2-3 lbs), but no monsters. A couple of weeks ago I got into a 13, 22, and 28 lbs all in an hour and a half. Anybody on here fish Lake Waxahachie regularly? I could use a fishing buddy. Send me a private message if you're interested.

Also looking to catch some flatheads this spring. Never caught one but I know there are some good ones here.

Brown, just like it always does. Not really clear and not really cloudy. Water temp was 50 in the main part of the lake and 55 in the shallow coves.

Only place at that lake I've caught flatties at was the creek feeding it.
I have seen about 3 years ago three guys noodling the ramp at the park at the shallow end of the lake and saw them pull out three pretty large flatties.

What has happed to you does not define who you are-

HOW you react to what happens to you DOES!

You might also try my Lynn's Catfish Calendar, as to Blues, Yellows, and Gator Gars. As to Yellows, actually I give three main angles of times, also insights, to target them.

1st is by way of one of the 4 sigs used in my Calendar, which is YC and stands for YellowCat. My Calendar uses 4 sigs which signify which has the strongest pull (influence) for that particular day.

2nd is by a few extra insights over the years gained (ongoing research) by me, plus two of my prize YC & Calendar students (Jeff & James). These tips are listed in what I refer to as the KEY.

3rd is by way of what I refer to as my PYC days, which stands for my Personal YellowCat Days. What this is, is the actual rhythm (ingrained pattern/instinct) that Yellows follow. The Catfish Calendar follows for the most part of this pattern, but can vary. The PYC focuses on what I have come to refer to, as this actual roam-feed nature infused pattern that the majority of Yellows & Gator Gars run by. This pattern always runs in the background. The Calendar just happens to pick up on the pattern very much.

And a bonus 4th, is that knowing the Calendar days or PYC days don't actually shut the gate, for example, run from Midnight to Midnight, but can have bleedover, which can be used to maximize or capitalize on the above 3. Bleedover can run as much as 12 hours earlier to 12 hours later. Using BC (BlueCat) days for example, say I planned a trip for a weekend starng on Friday, going into Sunday. BC days being Fri & Sun, but ZIP (Nada or very little) on Saturday, can be utilized hoping there will be Bleedover into Saturday AM, as well as Bleedover picking back Saturday PM. I have many students, be it set-liners (trotline, throwline, jugline, set hooks) or R-n-Rers (Rod-n-Reelers) that utilize the calendar from their mode of fishing. When they relay me info or ther experience & catches & notes, it benefits to more understanding of the Calendar & related research, which I eventually integrate it & share, from time to time.

I have some R-n-Rers & set-liners that target Yellows only by way of the specific days of the Calendar and/or the PYC days, but also understanding the tips in the KEY, as well as taking advantage of certain additional research discovered items, such as Bleedover, to maximize their volume. In other words, some have shared that they do not waste their time targeting Yellows at other times, anymore.

I did not pursue researching ChannelCats (CC), WhiteCats (WC), or MudCats (MC) also known as Bullheads. It started as YellowCat research, but BlueCat findings somehow came in the midst of that, as well as realizing that Gator Gars (GG) also run the same pattern as to Yellows, but the clock runs a few hours earlier (ahead) as to the Yellows. I have a few who use it towards Gator Gars and have really excelled in consistency, volume, and really big ones. The majority of Gator Gars follow the Calendar, as well as the PYC days.

However, from my experiences, I do tend to catch a lot of Channels on the BFT (Buffet or assorted variety) days.
