I went cat fishing today, started late (after 10:30 AM) and the bite was late. Anchorded down, which I only do in tournament situations, because drifting (trolling) is my style. Decided to give each hole at least 1 hour rather than the normal thirty minutes. No bite at all in the first thirty minutes, but at 45 minutes the bite developed. This got me to thinking (very dangerous thing for me) maybe, due to the cold water (under 50 degrees) the scent of the bait does not travel as fast as when under warm water conditions or current conditions. Being on LKN I had no noticable current, probably wouldn't know current if I saw it in the lake. Do any of you catters have an opinion on this subject, if so, would love to hear from you. Also had two blues which had red circles or sores on their bellies, similar to what we see in stripers that hang around the warm water discharge at Marshall Steam Plant and McGuire.
