    Depends on water temp and daylight but a good rule of thumb is May 1 through end of June. By July you can start atching big ones at night. Some folks are picking up a few now.

    I'm in sw va, and the cat bite has rreally slowed the last 10 days. Hopefully it will pick up in another week or so.

    Heard where some guys wore out the Bluecats from 15 to 45 pounds the other night in the James. All fish caught after dark. They stayed from sundown to sunup. Caught 20? or so. I am in South America through July. No shot at me fishing so I have to be content reading reports from you guys. Reports Please. This fish junkie need to see reports!
