    i love fishing for cats, but all i have been able to catch is decent channels(12lbs or less) i would love to hook up with a big flatty but i mostly fish ne ohio and other than mosquito dont know of any productive waters around me. also i have read some old threads in this forum and saw that someone suggested that large catfish suspend in lakes and are not on the bottom. if this is true it would explain why i have never caught any of them because i am always fishing off the bottom tightlined for cats. if anyone is willing to give any advice on techniques, bait( i use mostly cutbait and crawlers) or locations to fish i would greatly apppriciate it. thanks

    Fishman Catch bait???

    The rivers in your neck of the woods don't have many flatheads in them to my knowledge. Might want to consider taking a trip south down 77 into flathead country.
