Are the large channels in shallow water early and late?

It makes sense the catfish will be shallow some . The shad are spawning or have recently spawned on the lakes which means plenty of shallow food. Also, with the thermocline setting up on area lakes it gives the fish less water to live in. I really think time of day is not a huge factor on catfish location.

You will catch better channels in the fall and winter as the water cools.
