    This is just based on what I was reading on the board last year. I didn't catch any fish to talk about last year from May-September. May was the Spawn and as soon as it got warm the crabs moved in. This year I'm going to look for some lakes to fish in to avoid the craps or try for another kind of fishing.
    Good Luck

    Spawn takes place in May. When the stripers and shad all leave the river after spawning 65-68 degree water, (Early May) the bluecats start to spawn. They will start to bite again in late June but mainly at night.
