I have no trouble catching all the channel cats I can handle. Problem is I don't prefer eating channels. I would rather eat a small blue. If I am catching channels in 8ft of water or less, is it reasonable to think I would find blues shallower too?

Thanks for your input,
Scooter

It depends on what bait your throwing and what lake your fishing??

Sunday before last I caught blues in 5 fow on my homemade dough bait. I think this time of year the time of day may have some affect. After 9am all I caught were channels.

Ok, thanks guys. I wasn't sure , I will defiantly use shad and it cut bait. I will be fishing Eagle Mountain, content with just a couple of eater blues. Only feeding the family.

Thanks for the pointers,
Scooter

5-15ft been working well fishing points and flats at night using cut blue gills and shad.
Windier nights working out better off the bank as usual.
