    Don't give up bro, them bigguns are out there. When the weather starts getting warmer, go deeper, but for try the shallows man.
    What have you been using for bait ?

    Hes right. Shallow shallow shallow. The blues were in big schools last month in about 2-8 ft of water. They are biting on stink bait. Even the big uns. Lost one last week that bent my 9ft med heavy rod over. I had a small nick in my line that I had forgot to trim out and so guess where it broke. Im guessing he was 25 lb +. He doubled my pole over. The fight was great while it lasted. Once the cold front came through with all that rain the schools seamed to have broken up some. Im not catching them as heavily as I was before the front.

    stay shallow and fish the brush and if your on the bank make sure your on the bank where the waves are coming too fish into the wind another tip is you may spook the fish so if you dont catch anything within a half hour then pick up and move 20 yards and so on and so on try those things and take your punch bait thats what ive been catching mine on. hope this helps
