View Full Version : Hunting Flatheads In Havasu???

03-19-2011, 09:22 PM
I've caught several nice Channels (incidentally) and I have seen a few nice Flatheads caught by others.

Can anyone recommend an area on the lake that seems to regularly produce Flatheads from shore? I have never caught one before. I will be out there in early April and would like to add this species to my capture list.

If I were targeting Flatties I would probably try near the Bill Williams River or even in it after it warms up a little.Good luck.
