It seems like this time of year is always the hardest for me. I am thinking it is because I really don't understand spawning behavior. What depth are you catching blues at this time of year?

I'm probably going to be fishing shallow moving water at hubbard creek this next Tuesday and Wednesday, but the lake just rose 2 foot and is still coming up.

It's finally almost full!

Still catching them all day long in 1 to 4 ft of water on Cooper as long as there is a plenty of wind blowing. The water is about to hit 80 then I will fish shallow early morning then switch to drifting humps and points later in the day trying to keep baits above the thermocline.

Probably need to go back to drifting. In general, I have had very little time to fish and when I have my daughter is usually on board and all she wants to do is fish for Sandies. She likes to catch them and est the......now I just need to teach her to clean them.

Blues spawn earlier than the other two. You can catch them in shallow water now feeding but they will go back to the deeper water as long as oxygen is right .

Been catching plenty of blues between 4'-15' at Lewisville. Haven't tried anything deeper. Like clk said, they've been biting so long as the wind is blowing.

Got out about 630 pm couldn't buy a freaking breeze. Turned on the trolling motor and drifted across 40' flat to 20' hump, tripled up on first pass counted my blessings and headed in at dark. 3/ 2 pounders
