Uncle_bagster, for a person to answer a question like that with no lake mentioned, or targeted size of bluecat is very hard if not impossible to do. trlrman gave the best generic answer for the time of year and fishery he’s fishing! RightTurnTaxidermy gave a cool answer too! The only answer and best answer would have to come from somebody that fishes the fishery you are fishing a lot and you either have to do the time or sometimes pay for those!!! Now, I wanna add something... Pardners, fishing by the watertemp is only 30 % of the ball game... The other 70, is the fishery!!!! It’s the fishery!!!!!!
