    I have caught larger numbers of blues at night time, but I think they are most active in the early morning and late evening during the summer. Then again I didn't win many tournies either....LMAO:smile2::wink:...During the winter it is definatley the daytime..

    GET A CAST NET!!! I have never fished for them with anything other than shed or skips , but you can probably catch them with the other. That said we have done a lot of fishing with a lot of different baits , shad and skips will outperform all other baits 99 percent of the time.

    I started off this year in pretty much the same situation you are. I had never fished for blues and was tied down to bank fishing. I didn't get a cast net until christmas so I had to resort to things I could buy in the store or catch on a pole. When I went out with bluegills and chubs I caught nothing. When I went out with shrimp and chicken I caught stuff. I caught them in the day and at night. If you find the spot where they are and are active they will eat your bait. But like the fellas said, if you can get those skippies and shad, you are better off. Good luck! Let us know how it goes. If you are in cincinnati and need company while fishin', also let me know haha.

    I mainly fish during daytime hours and I have caught a ton of Blues during the daylight, early morning for me has been the best time being a tournament fisherman, I have caught a lot at night but I need to see structure and bank contours to be able to target them and I can't do that at night. I know all our fish over 50# has come during the daylight hours.
