Everything I have heard and read says that in the spring you need to fish shallow and structure because that is where the cats go to feed. I had good luck with that this, this past spring. But everything I have read states to use cut shad. In the spring I don't catch my shad in the shallows I cauch them anywhere from ten to thirty feet of water. So that got me thinking that maybe this spring I will try bluegill in the shallows because they are always in the shallows where cats are hunting. Let me know your thoughts on this. Have any of you had better luck with bluegill or shad in the spring?
