It's march and I've already caught a flathead. Last year I blanked when it comes to them, hopefully this year will be a totally different story. I went to Aberdeen early this morning and fished just about every spot there, I was using live shiners just fishing for whatever might want to eat them. I had been at it for a few hours and figured I'de try the mouth and then call it a day. I rigged up a rod with one of my larger shiners that I had, about 6",a nd cast it up into the area that had plagued me with snags about an hour before just for kicks. Just as I was getting ready to pack up and go, the old lady hollers at me that my line is moving out into the main river, picked it up and set the hook, and had this fish on. He managed to get me hung up 3 times, one time I thought for sure I had lost him but luck was with me and I managed to land him. He's no brute by a lot of your guys standards, but believe it or not, this is the second largest flatty I have personally caught, and is the first for the year. It had a big gut on it: Staying true to form, just as I was reeling in my rods I caught this monster: Don't quote me on this, but I did see a ton of surface activty of small 7-10" silverish fish jumping in the mix of Ohio/warm water confluence. Might of been skip jacks, might not of been. I had casting rods with me, but didn't have the jigs to try casting for them. It might be worth the drive down to see if they're there, but don't come lookin' for me if they arn't skipjacks Saw a lot of carp activty at the mouth too, and some really really big ones. I'll probably head down there Monday and try my luck with them.
