First resource i would check is odnr's site. They have species specific information. This is what they have under habitat and behavior for flatheads.


Adults prefer deep pools with slow current and cover, such as submerged logs and brush piles. They are found in large rivers in Ohio and are most abundant in the Maumee, Muskingum, Scioto, and Ohio Rivers. They can also be found in most of the larger reservoirs in the state, and they feed almost entirely on live fish.

Hit mosquito, it's the only lake with a fishable population of flatties, in northeast Ohio. Other lakes have them, but you'll fish yourself out before you catch one. If you do come south hit tappan, clendenig, or Piedmont.
