Tips on catching a flathead catfish?

I live in Cincinnati Ohio, so what would be a good place to catch them? (River,lake, pond?other?)When do they usually bite? What is the best bait to use? What rod is best, if I caught a bigger one? Thank you, in advance.

The river is your best bet. The flatheads tend to hold in log jams and undercut banks and in deep holes. The best log jams have deep water near by. So concentrate on outside bends of the river with submerged woody cover. Wood tends to collect near river bends and the outside bends tend to be deeper and the current undercuts the bank. Wing dykes on large navigable river are also great spot. Wing dykes are rocky manmade finger that project from the bank perpendicular to the river. There is usually a deep hole just down stream of the end of the dyke that will hold flatheads and blues. Fish will also hold on the upstream side of the dyke. Put your bait in the current seams. Current seams are places where two opposing currents come together. Use large live baits, bullheads, small carp, bluegill are all great. Don't be afraid to go big with the bait a 5pound flathead can swallow a 6inch bluegill like its a potato chip. You want to make sure your hook is big enough, for example a 7inch bait gets a 7/0 hook, 8 inch gets 8/0 and so forth. Be patient, big flatheads tend to be solitary and are few and far between. Fish at night, I've found that just after sundown is best but I've caught em all hours of the night. Good luck, keep after em and you'll catch your fair share.

As far as tackle goes, you need a stout rod, 7ft. or longer medium/heavy to heavy action rod. a good real with a large capacity to hold heavy line. my favorite setup is like this i have an abu garcia 7000c3 reel on a 7ft. heavy action flipping stick (alot of guys say my rod is too small, but I find bigger rods to be cumbersom). there are a wide variety of rod/reel combos that will work great. your local tackle shop should be able to get you set up. don't go to wal-mart, go to a actual bait and tackle shop, they'll be able to help you better and answer your questions. there are several ways to rig your line, too many for me to go into here. fishing line for flathead, I wouldn't use any thing less than 50lb test, I recomend braided line. here's a link that will help you http://www.learntocatchcatfish.com/ be patient and good luck
