Fished Tuesday and Wednesday. Spent most of Tuesday looking around with the new sidefinder. Fished only 3 spots. Caught 6 flatheads with the biggest being 28, 4 in the teens and a little one not bad for only 2 shad and a carp for bait.
Wednesday actually only fished for about 4 hours, spent the rest chasing bait. Finally got some good shad about noon. Caught 11 or 12 flatheads, 7 or 8 channels and a sheephead. Biggest were 42,25,20,18,18,17 and the rest of the flats were 10-12 pd. Channels were all 6-8 pd. Water temp Wednesday was 55 in the Ohio and 60 in the Kanawha. Seems like water temps are almost a month ahead of time.
Pics are of the biggest from both days, I don't bother with pics of the little ones and apologize for the fish on the floor pic but was by myself
Great job on the early flatheads! I never thought I would be reading such a stellar report on the flats in March! Like was already stated, I'm not overly surprised with the way the weather has been. Congratulations and enjoy it while it lasts, who knows what the rest of the year may hold.
Be a steward of the land and water, not a cancer upon it!
CPR! Continuing dreams one fish at a time!
Slatebar - I put in Pt. Pleasant at Crooked Cr. There is a dock there, Tuesday it was underwater and Wednesday it was above the water but pretty muddy to get to it. I went by Gallipolis ramp and don't remember seeing a dock, but it could have been underwater too? Going tonight, if we head down that way I'll take a closer look and let you know
Ok, thanks Team,, That ramp at Point Pleasant is a nice little ramp, Some nice fish yopu caught there. I haven't been on the water yet this year but hope to remidy that shortly.. If you see a couple old geezers in a Red Lund, drop by and BS a while.
