Question for those that know. On reservoirs, when the bluegill move up to spawn do the flathead catfish follow?

I was thinking about how bass move with the bait fish and started wondering since flathead catfish eat a lot of bluegill if they do the same.

If they do, what's the best way to fish for them? Live bluegill fished in deeper water just outside where the bluegill are spawning?

I have caught my fair share of flat heads on limb lines with live blue gill for bait.. I set them so the blue gill was just under the surface maybe 1/2 inch or so.. this would cause a lot of splashing ..basically top water fishing.. so.. I would say shallow..

Flatheads are live bait feeders. Bluegill fished around rock or wood is best. They ambush their prey much like bass.

Cut bait works best for blues or channel cats.
