They will pull out to 10ft plus waters from my experience. May be different in other lakes. I have caught them in shallow water in the dead of winter from some park ponds.

i usually fish a lake with shallow water and there really isnt much for them to migrate . they seem to bite on single pieces of corn and smaller method balls . if you chum too much they will fill up and go do what ever they do in their world ... not real sure what they do in big bodies of water . i usually fish small waters in the winter. but if the water is shallow where you fish im sure they will bite afternoons when the sun is out good

If they are used to finding food there they will come even in winter. Part of seasonal moves is following a food supply. By baiting the same spot over and over you change some of that behavior. They will not eat as much in winter as they are cold blooded, so don't bait as much when you want to fish. Catfish same, much of piling in deep water is following food. Some stay shallow all year.
