    For starters.....Welcome to the BOC Rob. Always nice to have a new Catter around...... now as for cats.... ALWAYS use fresh caught baits....shad, perch, bream, crappie, bass, ect........fresh cut baits or live baits are what your gonna need to catch big fish.....as it was put to me by a fellow BOC member.......Big Bait, Big Hooks, Big Fish. Spend plenty of time in the library and you'll soon see that there's more knowledge on this one site than any one man can ever take in......I'm still learnin. Hope this helps you in some way!!

    For Badin blues use fresh shad , herring or perch ,same for tillery ,for flats use the perch live on bottom or slip bobber them. Highrock flats at night use live perch ,goldfish or bluegill .:wink:CPR the big Blues !
