Alright, I'm lookin' for anyone out there that fishes man made reservoirs and fishes blue cats year round and has a good pattern for catching them in shallow water when times are right. I fished a tourney today and got beat bigitme by somebody fishing back in a cove while I was fishing textbook river channel ledges on outside bends and points. Depth back in there was probably 10 ft. or less I'm guessing. What I really need to know is how do you know when they are in there. You ain't gonna' mark a blue in 10 ft. of water or I ain't never done it anyways. Thanks for the help guys!!!
