    I'm guessing where I live down in Cincinnati it is closer to over than it would be further north since we warm up a bit quicker. Seems to me like the waters warmed up pretty quickly this year. Some might not be done spawning till August but if a cat is spawning now I could not see it spawning straight for 5 more weeks. They will finish up at different times. It seemed to me like the flathead bite down around Cincinnati vanished the first week in June. Might have been spawn or bad luck, I am hoping they just got on the spawn a bit early.

    Seems like the water temps have been in the 70's for more than a month, but that might just be wishful memory. :wink:
