Hello fellow cattin' addicts. A couple of us boys from Minnesota are thinking about a Blue Cat or Flathead Cat trip down south. I'm thinking it will be Blues since we don't have any up here. I figured I'd try and tap some of the knowledge on this site to plan for the trip. -We're looking to do a trip within about 600 miles of Minneapolis, MN. Any suggestions as to a location for real big blues. We've had a few ideas such as the James, Cumberland, Santee Cooper but a few of those may be too far to drive. -Would tentatively like to do a trip mid to late March. So our location would depend on a favorable bite at this time of year. -So far, I do not think we are looking for a guide but rather do this freelance. I would appreciate any information and a big Thank You in advance for the help!
