Hey guys. Is there any shore access fishing this lake? I looked at satellite images on google maps but it still looks confusing. Everything looks likes its private property and farmland. Any help is appreciated.

Hey Kathunter.

That is an insane fish - Congrats.

What kind of fight does that put up and what kind of test are you using on the line going after a monster like that.

Hey North Man, one came on a sucker head and the other on a 10" live sucker. We where fishing the mouth of the lake where it meets the river.

Hey kathunter, were you using live bait for the flatheads, or cut bait? Were they caught in the lake or in the Fox river?

Fished this past Saturday night into Sunday morning. 1st time actually targeting flatheads. We got 2 44" and 43". Endless channel cat bite. Puckaway could be one of my favorites if it's always this good. Didn't know this lake had fish in it like this. Tight lines everyone! Big Smile

Not entirely true Hollie as flatheads also have rounded tails same as a bullhead. Channel cats do have forked tails

Flathead are a brown color channel cats are more grey/dark blue. Smaller channel cats with sometimes have spots (speckles) on them. Also a channel cat has an overbite and a flathead has an under bite. I also posted these two pics for ya... The big one is the flathead (tan brown color to it) the smaller one is the channel (blue/grey)

They are two completely different species of fish, they just both happen to have whiskers and some other similarities.

Bullheads generally don't get very big.

Channel Catfish and Flathead Catfish can both get quite large.

Grandpa's name was John Heinritz. He owned it when it was called the idle hour. Any luck fishing the lake at all this time of year? Or any of the lakes in the area? Thanks again
