    I am going to the loz for the weekend staying across from four seasons. Should I try and cat fish this area. I only whant to target blues or flats but the maps look like this is all deep water. At mark twain I fish the humps that are usualy only 15 to 25 feet deep. And all the talk about the spawn has got me worried If I should even try. How do you fish this deep water.

    The deep water is far less of a concern down there than the 5 ft wakes from all the yachts going by... Of course, you could wait till dark when there's fewer boats on the water but every one of them has a drunk at the helm...

    That deep water should be real good for the Blues. Good luck

    Just because it's deep water don't mean you can not catch fish.

    Try drift fishing along and across the old river channels down there. I've fished LOZ since I was a kid...lots of big fish suspended above the channels. Graph them until you find a bend, then run straight lines down aroun 20-25 feet over the 50 foot channels. Cut bluegill works well and is easy to come by around the docks or chunk rock banks with some works and a bobber.
