After weeks of little luck and few smaller flatties, I had a great morning on the GMR. I decided to hit a spot with easy access since I am having trouble walking right now. I usually don't fish this area since it is not typical flathead territory, but boy am I glad I did. I fished a flooded area just off the main current with not so much as a bite for over an hour. I was fishing live bait, so I thought maybe I should try poking a couple holes in my bait and let them slowly bleed out. Less than 2 minutes after doing this to my first bait I had on my first flathead. He came in at 22 pounds. Before I could rebait my other rod starting running, this one came in at 23 pounds. He went into the current and put up a great fight. Ten minutes later I had another one on, hell of a fight, 26.4 pounds. Finally I got a 25 pounder to end the morning. All came from 2.5-5ft of water. Also, they all came between 5 and 6 o'clock in the am. Needless to say I didn't feel any of my back pain for about an hour! Hope some of this info helps the shore bound guys like me.
