I mostly bank fish on on a 7000 acre lake - max depth 60'. I have fished the lake for a year and a half and have never caught a blue. I recently got my first boat but the outboard shot craps shortly after buying, so I've been sticking to small coves and inlets with the trolling motor. Do the blues prefer the deep open water or have I just been unlucky ? I know theres blues in the lake, I've seen other fishermen with them and I read a report the the state stocked them 3 years ago.
