    I have never caught a Mississippi Cats out of a lake yet to date.

    Seeing the post from Ohio most all get them pre-spawn. They don't start up GOOD till after the water temps hit 55 and above!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In the spring, late April and early May, usually produces trophy size flatheads in shallow coves and bays where the crappie are spawning
