Hey theis is johnny G The weather's cooling down maybe get to do some fishing this fall,,,,, and I love to fish for flat head's!!So, I thought maybe I would post some fact's,,, about the kinda catfish I like to catch,,Flathead Cat: This catfish species is frequently called yellow cat, or Opelousas cat. They range the central part of North America. They are found in rivers and tributaries that feed the Mississippi and rivers that feed into the Gulf of Mexico and in lakes and reservoirs of that area.
This catfish species likes moderately strong currents and clear to milky water. They like water temperatures of 75 to 85 degrees and normally hold in or close to deeper water. They spawn in late spring or early summer.
This catfish species has a broad flat head and a protruding lower jaw. The tail is almost square. The anal fin is rounded. The back and sides are pale yellow to brown, with various amounts of black and dark brown mottling. The belly is a pale yellowish, light cream color
Flathead cats are caught in random sizes up to about 50 pounds. Catches up to 90 pounds are not too infrequent. The world record is 123 pounds.
The flathead catfish likes deeper and muddier water, with gentle current. They hold to the bottom more than other catfish. Preferred water temperature is 75 to 80 degrees. They normally spawn in June and July.
The flathead diet is almost entirely other fish. They prefer live bait and rarely scavenge. The only good bait is live bait. So good luck fishn',,if you need any catfishn supplies come see me at JohnnyG's Bait and Tackle..
