Caught a quick limit Sunday afternoon sitting in 1 spot. 17 fow, fishing 6-8’ down. I don’t have much info as to how the lakes been fishing since this was only my 2nd trip in the last few weeks.

I also caught this big ‘ol flathead in early July. Easily the biggest fish I’ve ever landed on a Crappie rig. Darn good eating and a lot of fun too.

It was! Switching over to better gear earlier this year made the difference.

I caught the first ~5 on minnows and the rest on jigs. They were hitting so fast and consistent that I switched over to jigs just to get back down there as quick as possible.

It was as interesting of a set up as I’ve seen. I was in the last deep water between 2 flats and schools of fish had a bunch of bait pushed up against that wall. They just kept coming in waves from 30 yards away swimming straight at me. All I had to do was get a hook down there.

Haha. I don’t usually keep anything bigger than 4-5lbs, but my buddy didn’t believe me when I said the big ones are good eating too. He’s a believer now.

I think you’re right. I’m catching a flathead almost every trip lately.
