    I haven't spent much time on lakes as I have always been somewhat of a river rat. What do you all typically see these blue cats doing this time of year? Are they deep or shallow? Relating to channels or structure? Following shad or other bait fish? Let's talk about how to find these fish. I know the KDFWR stock a lot of blues in these public waters.

    Im no expert but have had some success sticking close to the channels that run close to a steep shoreline.

    I'm a river rat too. I'm also having trouble finding blues and flats in a large lake. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Sounds reasonable to me, they don't get that huge by being stupid after all!

    That's a very interesting article. I will have to do some exploring and see if I can find a movement pattern.
